San Antonio, TX, May 29, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Texas has seen its fair share of wealth as a result of the south Texas Eagle Ford Shale boom in recent years. Many companies acting in this play have become pillars of philanthropy in their communities, sharing the wealth of the Eagle Ford to promote Texas growth. Brian Alfaro is no different.
Brian Alfaro, a philanthropist and oil and gas entrepreneur in San Antonio, released a statement regarding his philanthropic contributions to the charity First Book San Antonio.
“We believe that, as a company, it is our duty to make improvements in our community. By doing this, we are investing in the future of San Antonio. We believe that education is the greatest gift we can give to our great city. Investing in education drives future success,” reads Mr. Alfaro’s statement.
“We try to donate to at least one local charity a month,” says a spokesperson for Brian Alfaro, “That way, we’re spreading around the wealth to as many people as we can.” The charity of choice for Alfaro’s May contribution is First Book San Antonio.
First Book provides new books to disadvantaged children, “addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy” and future success (www.firstbook.org). First Book is an international program that has distributed millions of books to children in need, who keep all books given to them from the program. First Book works through community organizations such as day cares, after-school programs, and mentoring programs to identify and distribute books to children in need.
With this partnership between Brian Alfaro and First Book San Antonio, the socioeconomic boundaries affecting literacy and future success are being taken down. “When we help out local charities, we’re investing in both the futures of our children and of our city,” says Brian Alfaro’s spokesperson.
