Dropping coins into Red Kettles on the way into the store used to seem so simple, but now with a coin shortage and a pandemic, the Salvation Army has to find a new way to accomplish its mission of helping hundreds of East Texas families.
The very charitable JJ Watt is at it again, this time donating money to the family of a firefighter who died in a blaze that hit very close to home...for both of them.
This GUY. After all of the help during Hurricane Harvey relief, this is one more reason to love JJ Watt.
Leave it to Texas to think of really creative new ways to get us up off the couch and into a race for charity. One Hill Country town is getting attention for it's .5k race, and that point before the 5 is no accident. At about a third of a mile, just about anyone can conquer this thing!
In the wake of any tragic event, it seems pretty instinctive for people to say they're sending "thoughts and prayers" to victims. But as some of the survivors of the recent Florida school shooting eluded to, that's not cuttin' it anymore. It's time to do more.
Imagine going out for lunch and when the bill comes, you decide what to pay. A restaurant that works on the honor system and allows you to pay what you can, has popped up in Fort Worth. Could East Texas be next?
So far those spending time behind bars have donated $50,000 to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Did you even know inmates in Texas could donate money to charity? They're doing it, and kicking most of our butts in the process. Wow.
We are all deeply saddened by the horrific, senseless tragedy in Las Vegas last Sunday. Together with radio stations across America, we’re making a push to collect funds to help victims and their families. Here's how you can help.
With the huge hurricane Harvey relief effort getting the focus now, don't ya kinda wonder if other every day charities will feel forgotten and suffer with a lack of donations? One Texas restaurant chain is doing its best to make sure that doesn't happen, and just made huge donations to area food banks.
People tend to feel generous during the holidays in December, but January can be a rough month for organizations that rely on donations. Lufkin's Meals on Wheels program is feeling the pinch, and could use a boost right now.
Are we selfish? Texans don't volunteer time or give as much money as other states do, but we have a chance to change that today. It's National Giving Day, and that's why you're seeing #GivingTuesday on social media.
And See how low Texas ranks in terms of the most charitable states. It's not pretty.
