Because of the goodness and generosity of heart of so many, North Texas Giving Day was truly momentous for NDSM. We raised $148,223! Without our friends and supporters, this would not have been possible. Thank all of you who gave.
This support means that, in addition to the approximately 150 families that the entirety of NDSM helps each day, we have been able to provide food, clothing, prescription medication, school supplies, relocation bus tickets and motel assistance for gracious and grateful families impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
We expect this increased demand for services will persist during a lengthy recovery process.
It may seem school just got out for the summer, but we’re already gearing up for this fall.
