McKinney Capital & Advisory Helps Kids Find a Love for Reading, One Book at a Time
The McKinney team enjoyed providing prizes to support Traveling Stories’ powerful StoryTent program. Every prize donated will go to a child in need.
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 22 /CSRwire/ – McKinney Capital & Advisory held a Toy Drive in support of Traveling Stories from November 16 to December 16, 2016. For every commercial real estate transaction that McKinney manages, it recognizes that literacy plays a major role every step of the way.
The McKinney team enjoyed providing prizes to support Traveling Stories’ powerful StoryTent program. Every prize donated will go to a child in need. How does the StoryTent work? Each week, kids in need visit one of many StoryTents located throughout San Diego and read with Traveling Stories volunteers. For every book the kids read, one “Book Buck” is earned which can be accumulated to win a variety of prizes. McKinney’s donations included board games, art kits, stuffed animals, stationery supplies, doll sets, and toy cars.
Literacy development is a cause near and dear to the McKinney team, made apparent by the one of the first question its CEO, Damian McKinney, asks in an interview: “What book are you currently reading?” McKinney has been known to support organizations that inspire a love of reading, such as The Molina Foundation, an organization that provides free new books to children and families nationwide. The real estate advisory team plans to continue its involvement with Traveling Stories and looks forward to volunteering at one of its StoryTents in January 2017.
