The event was a culmination of efforts spearheaded by WCC with 25 partners and friends. Since 2006, the biannual event has raised almost $1 million for children’s causes. One-hundred percent of the sponsors’ total $73,000 donations will go directly to this year’s benefactor, Helping Hand Home for Children in Austin.
Helping Hand Home for Children provides a safe haven for children healing from physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Helping Hand Home delivers a continuum of services, including therapeutic residential treatment, education at an on-site charter school, foster care, adoption, and family support programs.
“Helping Hand is a terrific organization. We are honored to support their mission of providing care for victimized children,” said Neel White, Chairman of White Construction Company.
White Construction Company has corporate offices in Austin and Houston, Texas, Panama City Beach, Florida, and Ridgeland, Mississippi. As a full-service general contractor and construction manager, the company builds public facilities, corporate headquarters, manufacturing facilities, worship areas, and medical centers.
