Direct regular contributions from staff pay-checks already raised thousands of dollars. Funds donated to renowned Texas charity, The Mostyn Moreno Educational Foundation

Dallas, Texas – November 1st, 2017.    As Texans continue to rebuild their lives post hurricane Harvey, Amy Witherite And EW Lawyers announced that the firm is doing its part to help in that effort. In a recent statement the firm disclosed that to-date it has made donations of $25,000 to Houston-based Mostyn Moreno Foundation.

In a brief media release, Amy Witherite said that the funds were raised through an in-house program called EW Cares, which was created through voluntary bi-weekly deductions from staff paychecks. Ms. Witherite added:

“We wanted to see how our contributions would make the best impact on our clients, extended family members and members of the Houston community, so we created the program as opposed to donating straight to the Red Cross.”

Amy matches every penny of the contributions made, and the firm was able to donate $25,000 to The Mostyn Moreno Foundation through EW Cares on September 18th.  

The firm was concerned that, with the holiday season fast approaching, donors would lose focus of the dire need for continued support to the Texas communities that were devastated by the hurricane.  As a result, the firm has committed to sustain its donation program through the end of the year, ensuring that contributions continue to be made through the holidays.

The Glenda Jean Mostyn and Joe E. Moreno Educational Foundation has been set-up to support, promote and operate projects and programs in Texas, mainly in the East, Southeast, Gulf Coast region and Greater Houston area, that are focused on the abilities of children with special needs.
