It was truly rewarding to see the impact we made on the lives of so many families. The WAM team spent an afternoon volunteering with Feeding San Diego, and we are happy to share that we rescued 2,397 pounds of apples that will help provide 1,409 families with food. Feeding San Diego has an impressive mission to serve millions of meals each year, and we’re glad to have been a part of their mission.

On a beautiful day in September, the Weatherly Crew seized the opportunity to revel in the outdoors. Our mission? Joining forces with the Del Mar Village Association to partake in the Keep Del Mar Green Community Cleanup! Before setting out on our quest to enhance our beloved city, our team took a quick snapshot to commemorate the moment. Who could have guessed that cleaning up our streets could bring such enjoyment? Check out the DMVA website to learn more about the next clean up!
While the holiday season is commonly referred to as the most wonderful time of the year, for families in need it can often be the most stressful. This holiday season, Weatherly partnered with Crisis House to provide gift cards to make the holidays special for several local families. Crisis House works in our communities to stop the cycle of domestic violence and homelessness and connect individuals and families to critical resources and programs.

As the months turned colder, the Weatherly crew’s minds turned to our furry friends at the San Diego Humane Society. For our fall team building activity, we held a fleece blanket making activity and blanket drive amongst our team to donate to animals in need this fall and winter.

In June of 2021, our team took advantage of a cooler San Diego afternoon to spend some time cleaning up our shoreline. As a team of avid beach-goers, the health of our oceans and waterways is a cause close to our hearts. The Ocean Conservancy’s “Clean Swell” app makes it easy for you to host your own beach clean up and provide data to their global ocean trash database that is utilized by researchers and policymakers working for cleaner oceans.

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.
