Community encouraged to support local nonprofits

Community members can support local nonprofits—including the district’s own GISD Education Foundation—during the largest regional giving day in the country. North Texas Giving Day will host an online donation drive from 6 a.m.-midnight Thursday, Sept. 22, to help raise as much money as possible for charitable organizations.

In addition to the GISD Education Foundation, participants can help many establishments that serve the district. The Achievement Center of Texas, Galaxy Counseling Center and Hope Clinic of Garland are just some of the associations that need a helping hand.

Since 2009, North Texas Giving Day has raised $119 million for area nonprofits. Become a part of this altruistic movement by making a contribution of $25 or more via
