Today is North Texas Giving Day! Please consider making a donation today to help families in our Collin County community who desperately need assistance. Your donation could help a family remain stably housed for another month. Your donation could keep the lights on for a family and not disrupt school for children who are home doing remote learning. In the midst of uncertainty, we know we can rely on the generousity and spirit of our Collin County community to come together to help those in need. Let's bring hope and stability to our neighbors who are struggling. Please donate now at: https://www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org/assistancecenterofcollincounty

On May 5, 2020, our community will come together for North Texas Giving Tuesday Now, an emergency giving day to support the nonprofits in our region. As you know, our work has been challenged by the current climate and the impact of COVID-19 on our community, region and world.

If you can, we’re asking for your support on this emergency giving day, to help us continue our work, serving those who need our services the most during these uncertain and unsettling times.

You can donate now through May 5th at: https://www.northtexasgivingday.org/assistancecenterofcollincounty

We are social distancing but we have remained open to serve our Collin County community. Now more than ever our neighbors need us and although we are not seeing clients in person, we are managing cases by phone and email. We are receiving hundreds of calls a day for assistance with rent payments because many in our community have lost their jobs due to COVID-19.

We are working diligently to keep families in their homes during this crisis and we are so thankful for our wonderful community partners and donors but the need is great. If you are able to make a donation, your support would help a family remain in their home for another month. Thank you from all of us at the Assistance Center💙
