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.

A Day of Progress - MLK Service Day

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 4.22.15 PMOn Saturday, January 16, Serve Denton, the City of Denton and Target partnered together to host MLK Service Day in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. This day was full of community and progress for the City of Denton. Volunteers from around Denton County built bleachers for Fred Moore Park at the Civic Center and renovated nearly every room at The Wheeler House, a transitional home for moms and children in a housing crisis. There were over 100 volunteers who helped make MLK Service Day a reality.

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 4.22.21 PMThese projects were all made possible because of an $8,000 grant from Target. The grant money also went toward purchasing a smoker for Fred Moore Park and an insulated screen for Denton City County Day School. Target sent a handful of their employees to volunteer, and because of MLK Service Day, Target reached its one million annual volunteer hours goal.

At The Wheeler House, the family room was given a full makeover to create a homier space for the moms and children staying there. The hallway, foyer, office, and kitchen were given a fresh coat of paint, and some rooms were given chair rails to protect the walls.
