A Culture of Giving
Giving is a large part of the First Weber culture, as evidenced by the formation of the First Weber Foundation in 2005 which, since inception, has donated over $600,000 to a variety of Wisconsin charities. Our offices get involved in a wide variety of charities and community service projects and here are just a few recent examples we’d like to share.
Souper Tuesdays for the Berlin Food Pantry
This spring, members of First Weber’s Berlin office took turns making soup for lunch, calling their community service project “Souper Tuesdays”. Each week, 2 people made soup and dessert and collected $5 from everyone. A cookbook sale also added to the total. To date, a total of $325.00 was raised to donate to the Berlin Food Pantry. That amount will be matched through the Feinstein Challenge. Alan Shawn Feinstein has pledged $1,000,000 to communities that raise money or collect canned foods from March 1st thru April 30th. There is a minimum of $250 and a maximum of $35,000 that can be collected thru his organization.

Nice job, Berlin gang!
Volunteering at the Samaritan House of Marshfield
The entire Marshfield office recently volunteered at the Samaritan House of Marshfield’s weekly dinner for the less fortunate. Provided were desserts, juice and milk and the office also assisted in preparing, serving and cleaning up after the meal. Everyone enjoyed the experience so much they are planning on going back at least once per quarter.
