Tanglewood Moms Gives Back: The Greatest Gift Catalog Ever
It’s no secret that when we work together, great things can happen! Our goal at The Greatest Gift Catalog Ever is to put together some of the best run nonprofits in Tarrant County and get their messages out into our neighborhoods and businesses as a collection. Read about alternative gift ideas that put a smile on more than one face!
Through the catalog, potential donors, and volunteers learn about ways that they can make a real difference by specific examples of many needs all over our town, and in many different ways. And neighbors who need help use the catalog as a shopping guide for services.
- Want to learn more about mentoring our local young folks? We have organizations that will get you connected.
- Interested in helping our elderly with food and loneliness? We can tell you how to do that.
- Do you have a heart for our homeless or critically ill neighbors? Read about many ways you can make a big difference!
The GGCE was created from a frustration that gift giving during the holidays can seem frivolous and empty. Our founders, Heather and Elliot Goldman, wanted gift options that had meaning and supported their community. After visiting with local nonprofit leaders, they realized that a collective effort offering ways to improve their community was going to make the most impact.
According to our nonprofits, Tarrant County consistently ranks as one of the highest Texas counties with cases of abused children. We are also one of the top ten counties in the US with the highest number of hungry people overall. Almost 15,000 children experience homelessness in Tarrant County each year. Over 5000 neighbors who are veterans are seeking help with addiction related problems annually. You can help while doing your holiday shopping!
So are you ready to give gifts that impress your friends and help Fort Worth? Choose a need and donate a coat, a meal, an hour of tutoring for a struggling student, or even a prescription for a neighbor in pain.
Need client, teacher, neighbor, and grandchild gifts? With a gift card from The Greatest Gift Catalog Ever your family and friends can read all about local needs and choose which mission speaks to their heart…while you get the tax deduction!
