On July 13th, the shelter was visited by a gathering of SUPER HEROES who braved the sweltering heat to help our kids. The gathering sported 153 motorcycles, carrying over 200 people to spend a day with the kids at the shelter for Food, Fun, Fellowship and Funds. Bikers from all over the state of Texas and beyond gather to support our work with some of Texas’ most vulnerable children. The children were blessed with lots of attention and entertainment. The shelter was blessed with some much needed funding assistance and lots of things from our needs list. And we all had lots of food and fun.
A very special “THANKS” to all our motorcycle clubs and friends for their continuous support and care for our kids.
Thank you ABATE for helping again to prepare, cook, serve and clean up.
Thanks to Kaufman Police Department for escorting our very special friends to our party.
On Wednesday, September 11, 2013, we will prepare breakfast for United Way Board of Directors. This is also the United Way’s “Day of Caring” where all the board members choose a non-profit to volunteer several hours. Last year we had four members spend the day playing with the kids; doing laundry; preparing and serving meals/snacks; dusting and “visiting” with our staff and kids.
Christmas in July will be Saturday July 13, 2013 from 11:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. at the Children’s Shelter

Thursday, September 13 from 7 AM Central – Midnight is North Texas Giving Day! We are proud to be a part of the excitement.
North Texas Giving Day is an online giving event that provides nonprofits the opportunity to gain exposure to — and start relationships with — new donors, and for people in North Texas to come together to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits.
In just three years, Get Up and Give! has pumped more that $19 million into the community. In 2011, North Texas Giving Day more than doubled the amount raised in 2010. Thirteen thousand five hundred donors made gifts totaling $10.7 million, benefitting more than 600 nonprofits.
