Serve Denton honored Denton County Young Professionals at their board meeting on Thursday, December 8, 2016. DCYP not only supports Serve Denton’s programs and events, but they have become faithful advocates of Serve Denton’s mission. In 2015, DCYP gave all of their membership dues to The Wheeler House, making it their charity of choice. The Wheeler House is a transitional housing facility for moms and kids in a housing crisis run by Giving Hope, Inc. and an affordable health clinic run by Health Services of North Texas, all managed by Serve Denton.
One of DCYP’s members and a Serve Denton board member, Alex Lee, raised money to compete in the Texas Water Safari. He donated all of the proceeds to help Serve Denton build a pergola at The Wheeler House - Helping turn the transitional housing facility into a home for the moms and kids. Every month, DCYP consistently shows up to volunteer at the Denton Mobile Pantry, which is organized by the Denton Hunger Coalition and Tarrant Area Food Bank and hosted by Serve Denton.
This past summer, DCYP planned a sand volleyball tournament at Bahama Buck’s to support Serve Denton and the Denton Community Food Center. They organized the tournament as well as recruited sponsors and volleyball teams for the event.
DCYP provides educational, social, networking and volunteer opportunities for Denton County professionals aged 21 to 40. To learn more about DCYP, visit their website by clicking the button below.
