The Community Good Works Committee (CGW) partners with The Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County (CACCC) and with The Senior Source to provide community support and service. The main focus of the committee is to provide CPCU members with opportunities to get involved in helping our community. The projects led by the CGW in 2018 include Birthday Boxes and our Canned Goods Drive. Our Holiday Project is a gift drive to support the CACCC Holiday Shop
Holiday Shop: The Holiday Shop is held for one day at the Center during the holiday season. This is a place where caregivers are given the chance to “shop” for their children, at no charge, allowing them the joy of presenting their children with holiday gifts they would otherwise be unable to provide. Each year, the Center serves nearly 1,000 vulnerable children aged 0 to 18 years through its Holiday Shop.
Gift Ideas: Teen Items, DVDs, Books, Toys, Games, and Gift Cards. The CACCC serves a wide range of vulnerable children and as well as the more commonly gifted items for younger children, there is always a shortage of items for teens. The attached Amazon Wishlist includes items actually requested by the children themselves.
In person - Members can bring a gift to the December Chapter Luncheon on December 11th.
On-line Gift Order: Members can shop on the Center's Amazon Wishlist. This option is open to all members who don’t have time or opportunity to shop in person or attend the Society's event, but still want to contribute to the cause. The gifts are delivered directly to the CACCC.
On-line Monetary Donation: Members can donate directly on the CACCC website. This option is open to all members who don’t have time or opportunity to shop in person or attend the Society's event, but still want to contribute to the cause.
We are very excited about the installment of the committee and look forward to working with you in the near future. Be sure to check the CPCU Dallas Chapter site for upcoming events and feel free to contact the Community Good Works Committee directly at CGWCDallas@gmail.com for any questions or suggestions on future events.
