Thank You From DeYoe Wealth Management
There are many people in my community who do not have enough this year. There are folks for whom buying a turkey for Thanksgiving means no gifts under the tree. And… some of us, with immense gratitude, have enough… maybe even a little extra. I live and work in Berkeley, CA – one of the wealthiest communities on planet Earth. Driving my kids to and from soccer practice at Gilman reminds me how lucky I am… how lucky WE are.
I am so excited that DeYoe Wealth Management was able to team up with Berkeley Police Association (BPA) this year to re-invigorate their Turkey Basket Drive. When I saw Officer Murphy at the BPA awards banquet, I asked what happened to the turkey drive in 2018. She let me know that a combination of officer injury and lack of funding had sidelined it. There is not a lot I can do about the first item, but I am thrilled to alleviate the second. We are glad to be the anchor sponsor for the 2019 BPA Turkey Basket Drive.
BPA’s Scott Castle exclaimed, “Exciting News! Thanks to our generous sponsors, including DeYoe Wealth Management, City Center Church, the Fourth Street merchants group, and the Grocery Outlet, we should surpass 500 turkey baskets this year!”
Our offices were closed on Wednesday, November 27th so that our whole team, along with my family and a handful of our amazing clients, could load turkeys and fixings into bags and boxes and put them onto trucks to be delivered throughout the community in time for dinner on Thursday.
I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving.
