While steady work in a well-paying job is a big part of security for families, there is an equal need to ensure the safety and well-being of youth. With this in Mind, Marcus Hiles has made significant contributions to meal programs in Texas, as well as donations of more than a quarter million dollars to the state’s inner city after school programs. And, in order to lay the groundwork for future generations of young women to have success, Hiles has donated 200 new DELL computers and monitors for students in urban Texas schools. The real estate developer’s unwavering commitment to helping women and children stems from Hiles’ own modest upbringing, a time when buying a donut or an ice cream cone was a treat on special occasions. This has fueled Hiles’ dedication to philanthropy and to ensuring that women who are less fortunate can create bright futures for themselves and their families.
