DCYP Named Serve Denton’s Business Partner of the Month

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.

Brookshire’s Named Business Partner of the Month!

Since our inception, Brookshire’s Food & Pharmacy has been partnering with Serve Denton, providing major donations and becoming one of our top sponsors. This is why we named them our November Business Partner of the Month! They have continued to support our organization and events throughout the past few years, as well as occasionally providing food and drinks for our committee meetings and workshops. This past summer, Brookshire’s supported Denton County Young Professionals’ Sand Volleyball Tournament, which benefited Serve Denton and the Denton Community Food Center. Brookshire’s didn’t just financially support the event, but they joined us for the all-day tournament, providing cold bottles of water, pre-cut fruit and protein bars to all the participants.

Brookshire’s not only plays a huge role in many of our events but also contributes through our gift card program, ScripZone. When Serve Denton supporters purchase Brookshire’s gift cards through ScripZone, Serve Denton receives a portion of the proceeds.

We have so much gratitude for their constant support and eagerness to get involved with our organization. Their support helps enable us to fulfill our mission to support other nonprofits that open doors for people to become self-sufficient. Brookshire’s has been a loyal contributor of Serve Denton, and we look forward to many more years of working with them.

Thank you Brookshire’s for being our partner in self-sufficiency and for your commitment to giving back!
