Happy International Women’s Day from Weatherly! As a wealth management firm majority-owned by women, we witness the ripple effect of influential advances by women across the globe every day. We have the pleasure of working with women across all backgrounds, both as clients and as industry peers, and we continually see the positive change that women create when working together to uplift and support the community. In honor of the 2021 International Women’s Day we will be making donations to The San Diego Women’s Foundation and Catalyst Inc.

Over the course of the stay-at-home order, the Weatherly team has found a few creative ways to stay connected to each other during this unprecedented time. In addition to daily team video calls, the crew has been curating a playlist of songs we are listening to, as well as a WAM cookbook of recipes tried and deemed true during the quarantine. Some old, & some new, we hope this brings a bit of light to your time at home!
To close out 2019, Weatherly hosted it’s 2nd annual holiday food drive in partnership with the Jacobs Cushman San Diego Food Bank. This year, Weatherly collected 200 pounds of food which delivered 167 meals to local families in need this holiday season. In its efforts to combat food insecurity, the Jacobs Cushman San Diego Food Bank provides emergency food to 350,000 children and families, active duty military, and fixed income seniors living in poverty each month. Thank you to all our clients that helped make our food drive a success!
In November of 2019, Weatherly continued our annual tradition of setting up a cheering station for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walkers! The team dusted off our hot pink gear and handed out licorice treats and water to the walkers as they passed our office. Each year, we look forward to seeing our town turn pink in honor of raising money and awareness for breast cancer research. Since 2003, the Susan G. Komen walk has raised more than $848 million dollars for the cause. With every step, we get closer to the cure and we are proud to show our support for those who take on the challenge!

In the 2017-2018, the SDHS served over 67,000 animals through pet adoptions, wildlife rehabilitation, community spay/neuter service and more. This year, thanks to the support of our communities, the SDHS is on their way to serving even more animals per year! In the fall of 2019, our team paid a visit to the Gaines Street campus of this great organization for a behind the scenes tour and afternoon of volunteering. We spent time socializing a few of the resident bunnies, made dog toys, and sorted food for the PAWS program whose focus is providing animal services and products to under served communities in San Diego, allowing many the ability to keep their pets when they otherwise wouldn’t be able to.

On the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Weatherly remembers the lives of those we lost on that tragic day in American history, as well as their families and those still suffering with illness due to exposure to toxins during rescue efforts. This past weekend, a few members of the Weatherly crew honored those lost by volunteering at the 9/11 San Diego Stair Climb, a living memorial to the lives of the fallen Emergency Responders that jumped into action on that September morning. Proceeds from the Stair Climb go FirefighterAid, a San Diego based organization that provides charitable assistance to Firefighters and their families in crisis.

This holiday season, Weatherly celebrated by hosting our first ever Community Food Drive! Weatherly partnered with Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bankt o organize this community service activity. This food bank works to provide food and resources to the 1 in 8 San Diegans who face hunger and food insecurity every day. Over the span of a month at the end of 2018, the Weatherly team collected over 100 pounds of food and helped Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank provide 87 meals to community members in need.

Weatherly had the pleasure of once again cheering on the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walkers as they started their 60-mile journey to raise money and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. We showed our support by donning Susan G. Komen pink and handing out snacks, water and messages of encouragement on Camino del Mar as the walkers passed the Weatherly office. To learn more about the Susan G. Komen organization, and it’s San Diego affiliate, Komen San Diego, please visit: www.komensandiego.org/
To close out the summer of 2018, the Weatherly team put in work to clean up our local beaches! Our crew of beach lovers are passionate about keeping our oceans and waterways free of trash, so we decided to host a beach cleanup in Del Mar, through Ocean Conservancy using the Clean Swell app. The Ocean Conservancy created the Clean Swell app in 2016 to make keeping our oceans clean fun and easy. Learn how to get involved or host your own beach cleanup at: https://oceanconservancy.org
This quarter, our team made our annual visit to Feeding America, San Diego headquarters. For our day of volunteering, we helped the distribution center sort over 6,000lbs of tomatoes and prepped them to be delivered to various food distribution locations within the San Diego County. Amid environmental crises, and the daily struggles families face with hunger, our team was reminded of the huge impact this organization has on the community.
