The Community Civic League is seeking individuals that are looking to make an impact on needy children and senior citizens in our community.
Members of the Argyle-based non-profit organization have decided this year to focus all of their efforts on their Back to School and Angel Tree programs.
“There is a tremendous need for both of these programs,” said Shantel Day, CCL Treasurer.
“Without members and financial support, we are unable to assist those in our community.”
Last May, CCL raised $4,200 for their Back to School program from fundraisers, private donations and a partnership with Kohl’s Department Store in Flower Mound to provide 61 children enrolled in the Argyle ISD with clothing, shoes, backpacks, and toiletries.
Organizers said that it was the highest number of children served in the history of their Back to School program.
CCL’s Angel Tree program helped make Christmas brighter for a record 109 children and several senior citizens in the 76226 zip code last year, which includes Bartonville and Lantana.
The public is invited to attend the group’s annual membership luncheon on Tuesday, March 9, at the Miles Production office building at 200 Highland Circle in Argyle. Admission to the event is free.
For those unable to attend the luncheon but still wish to contribute, CCL is accepting tax deductable donations at the following address: Communities Civic League, Inc., P.O. Box 323, Argyle, TX 76226.
