R.H. White Companies, a construction services and utility management firm, recently presented proceeds from its charity golf tournament to two designated organizations that the tournament was held for – Easter Seals of Massachusetts and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). In total, the event raised $30,000 with each charity receiving $15,000.
Easter Seals and JDRF are two charities that continuously strive to assist those affected by their disabilities. Easter Seals does so through its work finding new technologies to assist those affected, as well as through outreach programs, medical care, support and many other benefits. JDRF continues its march toward a cure with its work to discover new medical breakthroughs for those dealing with Type 1 Diabetes.
According to tournament co-chairmen, Neil Callahan of R.H. White’s mechanical construction division and Russell Tierney of the company’s utility management division, WhiteWater, “The diseases these two important non-profit organizations advocate for affect some the company’s employees or members of our colleague’s families. We are beyond pleased that our business partners, subcontractors and vendors so graciously came together to help us raise these funds for our charities, through their participation and generous support.”
Giving back to the communities where its employees live and work is a fundamental philosophy of the R.H. White Companies. The company continually provides funds, labor, equipment, and other resources for a wide range of local and national causes and outreach programs. It also regularly collaborates with its business partners and professional trade associations to participate in other worthy fundraising endeavors.
