Between December 2013 and March 2014, relief was provided for more than 500 homeowners and 240 individuals affected by 53 fires and a major hailstorm. Additionally, more than 1,200 children were directly helped with safe shelter, food, educational support and medical needs, by eight charities. More than 50 families were successfully relocated out of homelessness, and almost 800 people received medical care and emergency medical care through two agencies. In all, more than 30,000 of the Coastal Bend’s neediest neighbors were provided direct services through the Day of Giving.

Mark your calendars now for Tuesday, Nov. 18, for the 6th Annual Coastal Bend Day of Giving. Plan to help support area youth, the future of the Coastal Bend, or others of your neighbors in need struggling for adequate food or medical support. Give for the first time, or support your community again. Watch for more details, including the matching fund amount, coming this fall.
