According to Code Pink Productions Inc. Founder/President Monique J Muhammad,
“We do better as a community through our selfless acts for others!
“That’s true everywhere, as in North Texas, where Code Pink Productions Inc. operates. This philosophy motivates our many efforts to provide opportunities to our fellow human beings, including fundraising events and mentorship programs.
“In our 10+ years of service, we’ve realized that many people can’t access life-changing resources because they haven’t had the opportunity to attend school, don’t have any work-related experiences, or need to become more financially stable. That’s why we want to help! Our programs include homeless assistance, financial literacy training, resume writing and interviewing skills workshops for women, youth, small businesses and low-income individuals. Many programs of this kind stop over the summer, but we run year-round to best support our community members.
“In today’s world, young women face many serious social and health challenges, including poverty and illness. We know this, so we started the Code Pink Girls Program. The Program provides health and wellness programs and sponsors sports and arts events as well as volunteering opportunities. Every year, we create spaces to learn, grow, and network for dozens of young women.
“We also have a lifelong commitment to helping adult individuals who are struggling with health issues. At our annual ‘Celebrations of Life Cancer/Health Awareness Fundraiser,’ we strive to raise dollars for cancer/health research and awareness and patient support. We award Gloria D Muhammad Excellence through Education Scholarship to two deserving young women in North Texas in 2022.
“In addition to these programs, our efforts at Code Pink Productions Inc. include clothing drives and food programs, which aim to help those who lack necessities to establish a more secure life and who are currently displaced.
“Code Pink Productions Inc.’s participation in North Texas Giving Day has given us so many opportunities to connect and brainstorm with other organizations and the North Texas Giving Day’s staff. These relationships have increased the support we’ve received from people, businesses, and organizations. They’ve also made us more visible to those in our community who need our services. The funds raised on North Texas Giving Day has helped to enabled us to feed and supply necessity items for over 300 people in Texas, Louisiana, and Illinois this year alone. We were also able to provide a new set of teeth for one of the members of our Code Pink Warrior program, who has lost her teeth due to the side effects of battling the incurable disease of Sarcoidosis.
“This year, we want to double our programs’ reach and increase their effectiveness. But to do that, we need your support!
“As we said, everyone has potential, and everyone deserves the opportunity to realize it. You can change someone’s life by contributing to this campaign. We’ll keep striving, and we hope you’ll join us!”
