In the Community
Westport One and their associates are actively involved in a variety of charitable organizations.
Through our "Casual Thursdays" program, Westport One designates one charity as the recipient of all funds raised throughout the quarter. Since its' inception in 2013, Westport One has donated over $5,000 to the chosen charities.
As individuals and as a company, Westport One supports the following charities both financially and through direct assistance:
American Cancer Society "Road to Recovery"
Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. The American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people who have cancer and do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need.
Loaves & Fishes
