Philanthropy: Who gives?by Tucson Business Edge on Jun. 07, 2006, under Edge
Here’s a look at some of the philanthropic efforts of Tucson businesses:
w Robert K. “Bob” McCord, chairman of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, recently presented The Hearth Foundation with a personal check for $10,000. The Hearth Foundation has provided shelter for thousands of women and children since 1987. The Foundation runs two shelters and three transitional housing units. The gift will go toward a new four-plex facility.
w The Pines Golf Club at Marana in April offered a special deal to golfers who donated nonperishable food for the Marana Food Bank. For a $30 savings off a round of golf, 104 golfers took advantage of the “Chip In” offer.
w The KB Homes Charity Golf Tournament in April raised $55,000 for the Tucson Boys and Girls Club, almost doubling last year’s donation of $28,000.
