The final push is on for today’s North Texas Giving Tuesday Now with just six hours to go. Yipes! Having raised $13.5M for area nonprofits, this first ever and very needed 18-hour marathon is for organizations that have been victims of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as those on the frontline battling the virus.
The North Texas Food Bank that has been put to the test in the past weeks and fed thousands and thousands of people is still topping the leader board with $1.46M, followed by Methodist Health Care Foundation hauling in $415K.
And while you’re checking out the leader board top ten fundraisers, note that The Salvation Army of North Texas has a match still open. Just imagine how many others in the 3,000+ nonprofits have matches that need fulfilling like Union Gospel Mission Dallas, Mercy Street, One Heart McKinney, The Human Impact and Brother Bill’s Helping Hand. You can check them out here.
Since the new world of social distancing and masked faces hit in March, folks have been more than generous helping their neighbors. While a bit of fatigue and being tapped out may have set in, this undertaking is proving that North Texans still know the best investment is their nonprofits.
