MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PwC US today announced that its Minneapolis office has donated $20,000 to TreeHouse, a non-profit organization helping local youth and their families, which was funded through grants from the PwC Charitable Foundation.
TreeHouse is a non-profit organization offering hope and guidance to hurting teens and parents during difficult times. The organization provides a safe place where its members can be open and honest about the pain in their lives that is causing them to think and act out in destructive ways. For the teens that frequent TreeHouse, it is a place to have fun, make friends, overcome pain, serve others and be empowered to succeed.
"We at PwC Minneapolis are very excited to provide this grant from the PwC Charitable Foundation to TreeHouse," said Tom Montminy, managing partner of PwC's Greater Minneapolis market. "TreeHouse is a safe place for teens in need to go as they work to overcome obstacles and strive to change the direction of their lives and its mission aligns with PwC's national and market-wide focus of developing future leaders. I'd like to thank our employees for actively working to make a difference in the Minneapolis community, by helping our local youth reach their full potential."
The grant will be used to help expand on TreeHouse's programs, which are designed to meet the needs of hurting youth and their families in Minneapolis. From mentoring, to support groups, to experiencing the intensity of white water rafting, TreeHouse has several programs designed to meet the varied needs of at-risk youth.
