North Texas Giving Day - Sept. 17
(DALLAS – September 10) The Tom Joyner Foundation is urging supporters of Historically Black Colleges and Universities to participate in the 2015 North Texas Giving Day as part of the annual drive organized by the Communities Foundation of Texas
The Foundation is asking alumni, students, and lovers of HBCUs to go to TomJoynerFoundation.org between 7 a.m. to Midnight on September 17, click on the “North Texas Giving Day” button and donate to the foundation.
“Here’s your chance to help students fulfill their dreams of getting a college education at an HBCU,” said Tom Joyner, the Foundation’s chairman and host of the nationally syndicated radio morning show. “For more than 17 years, we’ve been committed to investing in these students – and these colleges – because they serve a special role in developing future leaders.”
Over the years, the Foundation has participated in North Texas Giving Day in several ways, including in 2012 when it held a special event with celebrity chef Tiffany Derry at Paul Quinn College to raise funds for its “We Over Me” Community Garden, located on two acres of what used to be the college’s football field.
