Ways to GIVE BACK!

The Holiday season is HERE and although it may look a little different this year, there are still many opportunities and ways to serve your community. Whether it be by virtual donation or donating your time, we’ve compiled a list of ways to give back this year! We’ve even received some great suggestions from our CityCentral Community members and partners. There is no better time than now to help our neighbors and invest in our communities.

 

Our members from Acappella – a CaringPeople Company are partnering with other local business on the DFW Supply Drive for unhoused locals. With the winter season rolling in, vital supplies like sleeping bags, socks and toiletries are greatly needed! If you are looking for a donation drop-off in Fort Worth, stop by CityCentral! Of course there are many other drop locations throughout the metroplex. Check out the flyer for more info!

IOG: https://www.iogfw.com/contact-us

IOG is a local Fort Worth charity that was created by four guys who wanted to help families who have been working hard, but just needed a little help. It began 13 years ago with its inaugural golf tournament. All proceeds from the tournament benefit a single chosen family that has been placed on their hearts. The family is present at the conclusion of play for all to witness exactly where their donations are going. Past recipients have been presented new vehicles, additions to their homes, even a swimming pool. It has now grown into a small army to provide for many deserving families.  They also provide Thanksgiving dinners and are involved in purchasing up to 500 bicycles at Christmas time. IOG stands for “Investing in Others Greatness” and their motto is “None of us would be where we are without the help of someone along the way”. They were even recently featured on Fox News Channel’s The FIVE show for their gifting of a new car to a family in need during the pandemic.
