Last week we were able to honor the tireless dedication of our volunteers at our volunteer appreciation banquet held at Joe T. Garcia’s. We say it time and time again, but UGM-TC would not run properly with out the help of our many dedicated volunteers. The evening was full of wonderful food, music and fellowship.
Did you know that last year alone over 2,000 volunteers contributed 37,565 hours in time, valued at over $943,257 in UGM-TC staff savings? Wow!
Also, last Thursday was North Texas Giving Day. To promote giving we held our first ever Giving Day Game Day. Staff participated in a variety of game show challenges, with a twist. From “Wheel of Facial Hair” to “UGM-TC’s Next Top Model”, there was no shortage of fun. If you’d like to relive the excitement, you can watch our Facebook Live videos, here. Although we did not reach our final $60,000 goal, the support of the generous donors in our community helped us raise more than ever before on North Texas Giving Day!
