A Season of GratitudeSubmitted by Durbin Bennett on November 22nd, 2016
We wish you a joyous holiday season and thank you for the trust and support you have shown us throughout the year. In the spirit of gratitude and giving, we have made a donation to the Central Texas Food Bank.
Thanks to a thriving business sector and unparalleled economic development, Central Texas is among the fastest growing regions in the nation. But amid this growth and prosperity, many of our neighbors are being left behind. One in six Texans is at risk of hunger and nearly a third of them are children.
The rising cost of housing, utilities, transportation and healthcare leaves many of our neighbors to make impossible choices and painful sacrifices. Two-thirds of the people served by CTFB say they had to choose between buying food and paying for housing in the past year. Eighty percent say they had to choose between food and medicine.
Hunger affects people from all walks of life. Working families, retired seniors on fixed incomes, grandparents with custody of grandchildren, the chronically ill and the disabled all turn to the Food Bank for help in emergencies or as part of their regular meal planning. As we all work together to ensure everyone in need gets the nutritious food they require, please consider helping those in our community this holiday season.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Durbin Bennett Private Wealth Management!
