#GivingThanks Part 4:
In this season of Thanksgiving, FRI turns our thoughts to our members, supporters, and volunteers for all they have done over the last year to help us meet our mission: To transform Far East Dallas into a Safe, Beautiful, Prosperous and Proud community by inspiring hope and working together to achieve a shared vision.”
FRI says thank you to:
10. J. T. Walker is a board member of FRI and is our pro bono advertising “salesman” for our FRIdays newsletter. Did you know that it costs FRI $24,000 annually to print, publish, and bulk mail our newsletter to the 18,000 households and 60 apartment communities that make up the FRI area? If it were not for J. T., it simply would not get done. Thank you, J. T.!
11. Maria Valenzuela has served as FRI’s office manager for more than a decade. Mara lives in the FRI community and frankly, if it were not for Maria, we would not know what to do! Maria is a dedicated employee of FRI, but she often donates her time to FRI when she can. FRI is grateful to Maria.
12. A special thank you to all of our financial supporters, members, and volunteers who help make FRI run so efficiently and smoothly. Whether you are a volunteer helping with the sign-in process at a community meeting, or you are a Founder’s Circle member, FRI appreciate you!
