Today is Freedom Day!

Every year, the Entrepreneurs Foundation of North Texas hosts Freedom Day, "a powerful day of community service that was developed to honor the lives lost and changed on September 11, 2001."

This year is the 6th annual event, in which hundreds of volunteers from EFNT member companies will join together to support local non-profits in their community. In addition to serving at Catholic Charities, volunteers will be working at three of Central Dallas Ministries' locations. Painting, landscaping and even building a fence, these volunteers are going to make some significant improvements to our community in a day of service that reminds us:

"WE ARE ALL NEIGHBORS, TOGETHER."

Thank you to the Communities Foundation of Texas, the parent of EFNT, for their visionary leadership in bringing a branch of the Entrepreneurs' Foundation to our community.

And, of course, thank you to Pam Gerber, the dynamo behind EFNT and Freedom Day. Her spirit, her work and her life are inspirations to us all.
