Financial Literacy is vitally important to America's future growth and economic prosperity. We've partnered with EverFi to deliver an award-winning financial literacy program to high schools in the Fort Worth Independent School District. We know that good money habits start young, so teaching high school students just as they begin to take their first steps as independent consumers will be truly beneficial for them.
At Think Finance we believe healthy eating is the key to a healthy lifestyle, which is why we support the Tarrant Area Food Bank. Think Finance employees are called to action several times a year to donate canned goods, money, or time with our local food bank. We're proud of our always generous employees. This summer we were able to donate enough money to make over 150,000 meals!
Think Fitness is an initiative we feel particularly passionate about. Our CEO, Ken Rees, is a cycling enthusiast and encourages everyone to live healthy lifestyles through initiatives like the Think Finance cycling team, healthy lunches on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and on-site fitness facilities. Because cycling is so near and dear to our hearts, we believe every child should know the joy of riding a bike. We help build bikes for children and support bike initiatives in Fort Worth.
We also sponsor the Think Finance Racing Team, one of Texas' premier road cycling teams. The Think Finance Cycling Team emphasizes its Elite Men's & Women's teams, but also proudly supports it's Category 3/4 team and Master's team - who are simply interested in having fun riding and racing their bikes.
As a technology company, Think Finance understands how important technology is to future generations so we want to encourage tech knowledge wherever we can. This coupled with our waste-not mentality prompted us to begin donating our old computers to schools and non-profit organizations.
The Holidays are always a special time of year, and we like to make it even more special for as many families as possible. Every year employees are given the opportunity to choose an Angel from our office Angel tree and participation is always really high. Some do it individually, some do it as teams, and all positively impact the families they choose.
