The Spirit of Giving
Krekeler Brower Wealth Advisors partnered with The Carpenter’s Shelter, the largest homeless shelter in Northern Virginia serving over 1,000 homeless children and adults, to provide Thanksgiving meals for the needy. Our clients came out in full force to assist in the effort which culminated in a massive donation of seasonal food and necessity items. The day following the food drive our very own Sam Boyd participated in the Run for Shelter 5K to raise money and awareness for the shelter and their residents. Run for Shelter was a huge success with 846 registrants raising $30,662 for the shelter. A very special thank you to all of our magnanimous clients who pitched in! Please remember to keep those in need in your mind and in your heart this holiday season.
