Texas Trees Foundation
The Texas Trees Foundation has a vision for our community. It is a community comprised of beautiful, well maintained parks, shady tree-lined streets and boulevards, hiking, biking and nature trails, and other outdoor amenities which combine to form a living and working environment that enhances the economic value of its commercial areas and its neighborhoods, and nurtures the health, safety and quality of life of all its citizens; a community in which its citizens actively participate in building and sustaining its “urban forest.” The Foundation will serve as a catalyst in creating such a community.
Be sure to mention the organization when you place your order! Congratulations Dallas Center for Architecture for achieving a huge response to their fundraiser last week with over $1000 worth of the best pizza in the Metroplex purchased to benefit their programs.

Water is Basic-Irving Bible Church
Water is Basic exists to put clean, safe water within access of every person in the Republic of South Sudan. Our organization is an outreach of Irving Bible Church.
Most of the 10 million people living in South Sudan have no access to clean water, resulting in millions of individuals contracting parasites and painful diseases which can result in death. Every $150 raised will give safe, clean water to 100 people for 20 years!
100% of the funds raised will be donated to the Berry Family Children’s Trust in Houston, TX. On July 3rd, 2011, while returning from an annual family road trip in Colorado back to their home in Houston, Texas, the Berry Family found themselves victims of a horrific and tragic fatal car accident. Their minivan, carrying parents Joshua and Robin Berry and their children Peter age 9, Aaron age 8, and Willa age 6, was hit head on by another vehicle that had crossed into their lane of traffic. The parents, Joshua and Robin Berry, were tragically killed leaving their 3 children behind. While the children did survive the crash, both boys sustained serious spinal cord injuries and they are both paralyzed below the waist.
There is a significant need to raise funds to aid the children’s ongoing needs, including medical rehabilitation, physical therapy, psychological support and education.
The Berry Family 5K is being hosted in Plano on March 24.

Trinity High School GAP Club
Our club sponsors the Euless Animal Shelter, and funds raised will be used for vaccinations and our spay/neuter project for shelter pets.

We visit the shelter once a week to give vaccinations, walk the dogs, and take pictures to update information on petfinder and other adoption websites.
