To celebrate the birthday of Jack Dwyer, owner and chairman of the board, CFG employees came together to surprise him with a charitable donation in his honor. Jack has always been passionate about helping those in need, especially in the Baltimore community, so the group joined together to donate to a local cause. They nicknamed the gift “The Jack Project.”
CFG employees reached out to The Family Tree, an organization that works to prevent child abuse, build strong families, and provide parental support. The Family Tree put them in touch with one of its volunteers and her two children, who currently live in a sparsely furnished house in Northeast Baltimore. The Family Tree recently named this volunteer “mother of the block” in recognition of her efforts to provide a safe space in the neighborhood. Through the generous donations of CFG employees in Jack’s name, the team will purchase furniture and household items with the goal of making her house a home that will continue to be a safe haven for her family and neighborhood children.
As a second gift, CFG partnered with the Baltimore Ravens to provide this young mother’s sons with Ravens memorabilia. Ravens player Lardarius Webb attended the event to meet her two young boys and present Jack with signed cleats and an autographed ball from various players on the team.
Overall, the team was happy to put together an event that shows how much they appreciate Jack and his dedication to creating a positive workplace culture and healthy work environment at Capital Funding Group. Check out the photo gallery below for highlights from the event!
