When TimberTown was founded, part of our mission was to give back to our community. Growing up in a military family and now a father to three daughters, owner Steve Anthony has been drawn to organizations that help children and military families. Here are a few organizations TimberTown is fortunate to partner with.
Helping Hand Home for Children
Since 1893, Helping Hand Home for Children has been providing a nurturing and therapeutic home for children who have suffered severe abuse and neglect. In addition to offering residential treatment services and an on-site charter school, HHH also facilitates therapeutic foster care and adoption services. The home is the oldest continuously operating residential childcare agency in Austin, TX. TimberTown has partnered with Helping Hand Home to provide gifts for their Foster and Adoption Holiday Party, and hosts a workshop during their Academic Enrichment Summer Camp.
Operation Finally Home
Operation FINALLY HOME address the most pressing need of our returning armed forces: a place to call home. OPF has a unique network of experienced builders, suppliers, and supporters that build mortgage-free homes for wounded, ill or injured veterans, or surviving spouses and their families. Created in 2005, OPF is a non-profit organization that builds homes across the United States. TimberTown is fortunate enough to supply the decking materials for Operation FINALLY HOME projects in the Austin Metro area.
Craig Brzezinski Hope Foundation
Craig Brzezinski was a man dedicated to his family and faith, inspiring hope to all those he came in contact with. Tragically, he lost his battle with cancer in December 2013 and left behind his beloved wife, April, and four young children. Though he experienced great pain, Craig always exhibited a positive attitude and continuous hope. His legacy lives on through his family and friends and the Hope Foundation. The Hope Foundation, started by Craig's brother Cary, seeks to help families in financial need who have experienced the loss of a spouse or parent. As a personal friend of Craig and his family, TimberTown Owner Steve Anthony has strong ties with this foundation and is a sponsor at their annual "Craig Brzezinski Hope Golf Tournament" held at Avery Ranch Golf Club.
