North Texas Giving Day is this Thursday, September 14, and in the wake of recent hurricanes in South Texas and Florida, there’s no better time than now to open our hearts.
As a lifelong patron of the performing arts and other types of organizations that assist people in need, I am proud to work for a company that values charitable giving. The “Copart in the Community” section of our employee-focused blog, TeamCopart.com, is a testament to the generosity embodied by our employees, both in the U.S. and abroad. From Copart Brazil’s clothing drive, to Copart UK’s dedication to the nonprofit organization Ben, to our domestic locations’ support of veterans, law enforcement and first responders, Copart is more than an online vehicle auction company.
Last year, through our North Texas Food Bank canned food drive, Copart Headquarters in Dallas collected 530 pounds of food, equating to more than 440 meals for children, families and seniors in North Texas. Along with donating to the North Texas Food Bank, we have recently contributed to Dallas-based children’s charity Vogel Alcove, including participating in the annual dodgeball tournament. Currently, Copart is supporting hurricane relief efforts.
This Thursday, I encourage all of us in North Texas to dig a little deeper into our pockets, if we have the means to do so, to help our fellow Texans during this time of need. No matter your organization or charity of choice, let’s make this North Texas Giving Day the most successful yet.
