DWM’s Holiday Drive is an annual winter campaign. Every year in November, Destination Wealth Management receives "wish lists" from local families in need. DWM partners with Uplift Family Services for this campaign.
The firm splits up into groups of 4-6 employees and are sent out with a list of items to purchase for each member of the family that is assigned to them. DWM then wraps and delivers the presents to the organization so they can be delivered to the families.
Uplift Family Services has evolved over 150 years to deliver the most visionary behavioral health services to California’s children and their families. They began in 1867 as Eastfield Home of Benevolence, a San Jose orphanage, and Ming Quong Presbyterian Mission Home, an orphanage for Chinese girls who had been rescued from slavery. In 1880, Hollygrove was founded in downtown Los Angeles as the Los Angeles Orphans Home Society.
Today, Uplift Family Services is one of the most comprehensive, innovative, family-centered treatment programs providing services to over 30,000 children and their families annually throughout 30 counties in California.
Uplift Family Service's mission is to do whatever it takes to strengthen and advocate for children, families, adults and communities to realize their hopes for behavioral health and well-being.
* In 2020 the Holiday Drive was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. DWM will resume this campaign in 2021.
