Williams Family Make Annual Donation to Goodfellows
Over a nine year period, Williams Family has donated over one million dollars to the fund
HOUSTON, TX (December 8, 2011) – Williams Kherkher Hart Boundas, LLP, is proud to announce today that Managing Partner and philanthropist John Eddie Williams, Jr., his wife Sheridan and their family have once again donated $200,000 to the Houston Chronicle’s Goodfellows Fund. Goodfellows provides new toys for needy children ages 2 to 10. Donations go towards the purchase of toys and other gifts for underprivileged children which are distributed to over 100,000 children each holiday season.
This is the ninth year in a row that Mr. Williams and his family have donated to the fund. This year’s amount matches their past 3 donations of $200,000, bringing their total donation over 9 years to well over 1 million dollars.
“The Williams family is one of Goodfellows strongest advocates,” said Houston Chronicle Publisher and President Jack Sweeney. “Every year we are amazed and appreciative of their unparalleled generosity.”
“Goodfellows is a tremendous way to insert a little hope in people’s spirits during the holidays,” said Williams. “The past couple of years have been hard-hitting to many fellow Houstonians but each year this program passes on that little bit of happiness that makes the holiday season special. Our family is grateful to have the means to help and hopefully spread some holiday joy to the community.”
