East Texas non-profits have really stepped up to help out those in need in our area during the pandemic and during times of natural disasters and when help is needed. Many families are turning to these organizations for food, shelter, clothing, utility expense assistance and other services, so that they can just survive.

With many donations still down due the ongoing pandemic, non-profits need our help now more than ever. You can truly help to change the face of our community and better our citizens by supporting these organizations during East Texas Giving Day.
