SCC Annual Tree Lighting and Grant Ceremony
With the addition of the $300,000+ distributed in December 2014, SCC Texas has proudly given $9.7 million in grants since 1997 to various incredible children's organizations across North Texas.
The $150,000 Founder's Grant awarded this past year will allow the Tarrant Area Food Bank to expand its mobile pantry program by utilizing the funds to purchase a 53-foot refrigerated tractor trailer for food distributions. The vehicle will be able to increase its distribution of nutritious, perishable food to an additional 48,000 underserved children through this expansion. We are very proud to partner with this wonderful organization!
2014 Partner Grant Recipients:
- Camp iHope
- Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth
- Denton Kiwanis Children's Clinic
In addition to these grants, SCC Texas gave out brand new bicycles and helmets to 100 Fort Worth-area children representing FitWorth, Fire Station Community Center and Diamond Hill Elementary School. These early Christmas presents were generously donated by some outstanding SCC Trustees - George and Linda Campbell and Chalmer and Karen McWilliams.
