Houston Attorney/Law Firm Donates $200,000 to Goodfellows Fund

HOUSTON — Williams Kherkher Hart Boundas, LLP, announced today that Houston attorney John Eddie Williams, Jr., and his wife Sheridan donated $200,000 to the Houston Chronicle's Goodfellows Fund. Goodfellows provides new toys for needy children ages 2 to 10. Donations go towards the purchase of toys and other gifts for the children. This is the fifth year in a row that Williams, managing partner of Williams Kherkher, has made a donation, and this year's matches the largest ever received by the fund in its 96-year history.

"John Eddie and Sheridan's generosity is truly inspiring," said Nelle Spates, director of Goodfellows. "This extraordinary investment in our program will allow Goodfellows to help even more children in the Houston area this year."

The Houston Chronicle assumes all costs for administering the program. Toys are distributed to over 100,000 children each holiday season.

Williams Kherkher is one of Texas' leading personal injury firms. In the last decade, it has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for its clients.

The Houston Chronicle is the largest daily newspaper in Texas and the ninth largest newspaper in the United States. It is owned by the Hearst Corporation.

This donation is a nice example of a local businessperson supporting those in need right in the Houston community. Goodfellows is a fine program, and this donation will enable the group to provide toys to so many children who might otherwise go without this holiday season. Perhaps the Williams Kherkher firm can challenge other law firms to match their donation!
