BRIGHTER HOLIDAYS FOR DALLAS AFTERSCHOOL STUDENTS
Last month Dallas Afterschool received a very special donation from sportscaster and former Dallas Cowboy, Troy Aikman ! This very generous gift provided toys to 1,200 students at our afterschool sites for the holidays. Thank you to Troy and also to United Way of Metropolitan Dallas for making this donation possible! What a great way to end 2019!
YOUNG PROFESSIONALS ENJOYED "COFFEE & CONVERSATIONS"
Young professionals recently had the unique opportunity to visit with select Dallas Afterschool Board and Advisory Council members at a breakfast networking event. Our distinguished panel shared career advice and insights on community involvement.

Thank you to The Honorable Ann Margolin, Terry Conner, JJ Ponce and David Russell for sharing their time and wisdom with this next generation of change-makers!

Thank you for your continued support as we work to make an even greater impact on students, educators, and programs this year! We could not do this important work without you!
