In concert with the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign, the international call for unity and giving, Communities Foundation of Texas‘ North Texas Giving Day, the Dallas Cowboys, and the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas have teamed up to do what they do best – come together to support the organizations and individuals who need help the most.

On Tuesday, May 5, this collaborative will host an emergency response day of giving, North Texas Giving Tuesday Now, to encourage donor support for nonprofit organizations reeling from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Early Giving begins April 14 and your donation will support our released participants who are encountering a landscape that is infinitely more difficult to navigate without reentry support. We are buying their first week of groceries and providing their first two weeks of transitional housing rent free. Our Life Caddies are providing participants transportation for job interviews and to secure proper documentation. We have also moved our post-release classes to a virtual, online-based curriculum. Providing these services will help PEP graduates stay crime & addiction free and maintain 100% employment within 90 days of release..
