Quote from a family...
"Ragans HOPE is a tremendous blessing to our family. Not only did they assist us while our son was hospitalized but even after we came home. We appreciate the prayers, the phone calls and every holiday thought. Ragan's HOPE has made a difference in all of our lives. Every volunteer that we have been in contact with has been absolutely wonderful to our family. When we had no where else to turn, Ragan's HOPE was right there. Ragan's HOPE is truly a God sent. Thank you all so very much"

A note from Dan...
Our legacy continues to grow with more partnerships joining in with Ragan's HOPE to provide referrals of new families and support in so many ways.
Top Golf, continues to provide support through employees volunteering their time. Backpacks were donated, picked up and delivered to another one of our corporate supporters, Samsung. Samsung employees, donated their time to fill the backpacks with school su
pplies for families.
Ragan's HOPE, was represented once again at the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce Talent Pipeline Policy Task Force meeting. This group addresses educational agendas to be brought before the Texas legislature for consideration each year.
Thanks to Anderson Paving, Inc., for assisting in the move of a Ragan's HOPE family!
