TRUSSVILLE – The McSweeney Foundation recently teamed up with Church of the Highlands and Target in Trussville to provide Christmas to 100 local children.
Employees from SCA Performance and McSweeney Designs caravanned to the Super Target in Trussville to shop for the gifts on Dec. 7.
“We like for our contributors to see how their gifts are making a difference,” Diedre Leo, the McSweeney Foundation’s Administrator, said. “What better way to do that than to let them shop with the money they’ve given to provide Christmas for nearly a hundred kids in our community.”
All gifts purchased were given to support Church of the Highland’s “Giving Hope” ministry.
“The operation (Church of the Highlands) runs is so well-organized, we decided to partner with them instead of doing our own thing,” Matt McSweeney, one of the McSweeney Foundation Chairmen, said. “Doing so will allow us to reach as many families as we can with the joy of Christmas.”
The McSweeney Foundation was founded in 2013 by McSweeney Holdings owners Rod, Matt and Michael McSweeney. Since 2013, the foundation has supported education and families locally and abroad through contributions of employees from its affiliated companies, SCA Performance and McSweeney Designs, as well as gitfs from foundation partners globally. All support for the McSweeney Foundation goes to fund the “Empowerment Through Education” initiative.
The McSweeney Foundation was formed for the purpose of spreading the love and understanding of Jesus Christ through acts of kindness like providing general food, shelter and clothing needs for the less fortunate. The foundation focuses on the key initiatives of international education, local community mentoring and local seasonal assistance.
