The Denton Community Food Center waiting room will be sponsored by PointBank, and will be named after Ray David’s mother and stepfather, Bill and Linda Brady.
As a community bank, giving back to the community is in PointBank’s DNA. Like Ray said, “That’s part of being a community bank … being part of the community.”
“You get to make a large impact helping a lot of areas that need it, from mental needs to physical needs, in a very efficient manner.”
Ray was born and raised in Denton, and his connection to the Denton Community Food Center goes back to his childhood. His mother, Linda Brady, retired at a fairly young age, which allowed her and her husband Bill to volunteer their time at the Denton Community Food Center.
Her passion is what inspired Ray to help the Denton Community Food Center open its new building on Serve Denton’s campus. Ray said both his mother, Linda, and father, Raymond, made giving back to the community a priority in their household.
This had a significant impact on Ray’s life.
The Denton Community Food Center project came up in one of PointBank’s meetings, and Ray immediately thought of his deep connection to the Denton Community Food Center, and the significant impact it directly had on his life. Ray said food assistance and mental healthcare are two of his biggest passions when it comes to giving back to the community.
When asked why others should get involved in Serve Denton’s capital campaign, Ray said, “You get to make a large impact helping a lot of areas that need it, from mental needs to physical needs, in a very efficient manner.”
It is projected that over 16,000 people will be served at the Serve Denton Center by all of the nonprofit agencies during the first year of operations.
Ray’s Involvement in the Community
Ray recently joined the Board of Directors for Youth & Family Counseling, one of our partner nonprofit agencies, volunteering his expertise to help more people receive affordable counseling.
PointBank also donated funds to the Lewisville Public Library which has helped make the internet more accessible to families in the community by helping to make Wi-Fi hotspots.
Ray is proud to have served PointBank by contributing to the design of its proprietary software for internet banking. In addition, he helped to make PointBank the first community bank in the Nation with a commercial banking app, a component traditionally only available for desktop computers.
We are so grateful for Ray David, Jr. and PointBank for their commitment and investment in our capital campaign. This project will bring food assistance, medical care and an advocacy center to one centralized location.
Once all phases are complete, Serve Denton will be the second largest nonprofit center in Texas, second only to Haven for Hope in San Antonio, TX. It is projected that over 16,000 people will be served by all of the nonprofit agencies during the first year of operations.
