Weatherford is dedicated to fostering a positive relationship in our local communities. Across the globe, our employees share a passion for community outreach, dedicating their time and energy to a wide variety of meaningful causes.
One such cause is our annual Weatherford Walks charity event, a mile-long walk in support of local Houston community non-profit organizations. This year, with the hard work and support of our employees and partners such as AZA, Baker McKenzie, KPIT, Oakwood Agency, Citi, and Hyannis Port Capital, we were able to raise more than $300,000 to benefit three local charities—the Houston Area Women’s Center, Camp Hope, and Small Steps Nurturing Center. We proudly support charities such as these, which are rooted in the local community and provide integral services to our neighboring families in need.
Weatherford is also involved with Spindletop Charities, a non-profit group that works to enhance the lives of at-risk youth in the greater Houston area. At the 2018 Spindletop Gala we helped to raise funds and collect toys to benefit kids in the local community. Our employees also showed their generous spirit by donating toys to the Houston Fire Department’s Operation Stocking Stuffer.
At Weatherford, we strongly believe in the power of education to help build a better future. To do our part, our Weatherford WISE (Worldwide Initiative Supporting Education) program aims to provide educational opportunities to youth with a special emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
By forging lasting partnerships and supporting charities that care for our local area, we hope to foster a sense of community resiliency and interconnectivity.
