It’s no secret that COVID-19 has brought big changes to day-to-day life. Even though many of us are working from home and practicing social distancing, there are still many ways that we can give back to our North Texas community. Many local non-profits have stepped up their efforts to give back to those in need and we want to highlight the good works they are doing in our community. Together, we will get through this, while helping our communities at the same time.
