Subaru Shares the Love with Serve Denton

Subaru Shares the Love with Serve Denton

This is the second year in a row for Huffines Subaru Corinth to choose Serve Denton as the local charity of choice for their 2017 “Share the Love” campaign!

This means from November 17, 2017, to January 2, 2018, customers can choose to support one of four charities (three national or one local) with their purchase. Subaru will then donate $250 to that charity for each Subaru vehicle sold or leased at Huffines Subaru Corinth.

Shop Serve Denton & Save Big

Serve Denton is partnering with Give10Back.org to present “Shop Serve Denton!” This is an opportunity for people to save between 50 and 75 percent on online products from places such as Amazon, Best Buy and Target. Give10Back.org is a charitable initiative of Discount Truckloads, a business that receives customer returns, closeouts, overstocks, shelf pulls and clearance items from big retailers. You might be familiar with AmazonSmile, which is the same Amazon you know and love, but you get to choose a charity for a portion of your purchase to benefit! Serve Denton is currently one of the almost one million charities signup up for this program, but nonprofits only receive 0.5 percent of each sale minus rebates, taxes or service charges. This is where Give10Back.org unloads their generosity.

Give10Back.org donates 10 percent of the proceeds from each sale to a charity.

From Wednesday, November 9, 2016, through Sunday, January 15, 2017, Serve Denton is the beneficiary! There are fifteen product categories such as toys & video games; electronics & office supplies; kitchen & household items; and sports, fitness & outdoors. This is a great opportunity to buy Christmas gifts at significantly discounted rates while supporting a local nonprofit at the same time!

Visit Give10Back.org to browse the selection of items, which is constantly being updated when new truckloads arrive. For more information about Shop Serve Denton, contact Priscilla Sanders at psand66@gmail.com.

Celebration Recap

Our Fourth Annual Celebration was a night full of firsts. We started a new tradition by rolling out the “Making a Difference” awards. We used a mobile bidding company called GiveSmart for our silent auction, and we heard from the former news anchor many of us grew up with, Gloria Campos. 12976850_977118005713448_7406600106829894574_o-1We awarded 5 community members with the “Making a Difference” award for their underground service to our city. The purpose of the award is to highlight the people in our community who do the behind the scenes work and rarely get recognition. They do what they do for a selfless reason. From the hungry to the homeless to the neglected and troubled - Everyday life in their shoes deserves an award.

12967463_977118045713444_3603631530590188884_oGloria Campos spoke about her experience with becoming an advocate for Wednesday’s Child, a foster organization. She highlighted sometimes up to eight kids at a time hoping to find them loving and permanent families. Because of her 40-year experience in journalism, she has had to report on many sad and depressing stories, which is why she has made it her mission to only report good news from now on. If you check out her Twitter, she is all about sharing uplifting and encouraging stories.

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our Celebration. Please know how grateful we are for your generosity and support. YOU are the reason we can help other nonprofits help people become self-sufficient.
