“The first answer is that I would endorse the check over to Downtown Dallas Inc. as there no one or organization that does a better job for the “betterment of Dallas” than DDI—As Goes Downtown, So Goes Dallas!! If you consider where we were 10 years ago and compare the vision that is now reality, it’s no contest.
If you are looking for something a little less self serving (although I am still convinced the first answer is correct) and approaches “betterment” differently, the recipient would be The Salvation Army. There are so many options in Dallas to choose from that do a wonderful job in a variety of ways; the Red Cross, United Way, Genesis Women’s Shelter and the list goes on and on and on. However, The Salvation Army’s slogan of “Doing the Most Good” literally says it all as it seeks to create a better Dallas and a better world through prayers, gifts and services.”
