Flower Mound Rotary's 2024 Annual Grants Distribution
June 13th was a great day for the Flower Mound Rotary Club. We honored community organizations, providing them with donations to continue their mission of serving others. We had 39 Denton County non-profits apply for grants and ended up donating to 11 of them.  It was hard to limit the number, there are so many worthy organizations in our area doing great things.
Each year we raise funds at our Reindeer Run and Grinch Sprint to help our community. In the last three years we have given $265,000 to local, national and international organizations. 
Our work continues to make a significant impact in people's lives which only motivates us to continue raising funds and recognizing worthy non-profit organizations.
The non-profits we chose this year are:
Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star - Denton CountyThe mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.  They’ll use the grant to help find, screen and train more matches (mentors) for their little ones.
The Children's Advocacy Center for North Texas: When a crime of child abuse occurs the Children's Advocacy Center is a place where children and their families come for help. They plan to use the funds to provide a supply room for their clients as they enter the program. It will help provide for household, school and personal needs.
Christian Community ActionChristian Community Action (CCA) has been rescuing, healing, feeding and educating families in need since 1973. What started as a small Bible study of seven people has grown into a thriving organization of over 2,700 volunteers and 30 employees passionate about serving our community.  They are going to use the funds for their Kids Eat Free program this summer.  Healthy meals will be provided to children at risk of going hungry during the summer months when they do not have access to school meals.
Cross Timbers YMCA: Our Y is a powerful association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. Their grant will subsidize youths unable them to participate in their programs. In addition, the funds raised allow them to offer free programs like Safety Around Water (SAW) drowning prevention program to help eliminate drowning and their LIVESTRONG Cancer Survivor Program.
Friends of the Family: Provides compassionate, comprehensive services to those impacted by rape, sexual abuse, and domestic violence. The grant will be used to upgrade the facilities at Camp Hope America, a summer camp for youth and teens exposed to domestic violence.
Friends of the Flower Mound Library: Builds public awareness and support of the library to enhance its service to the community. They’ll use the funds to add to the library collection and pay for special programs.
Journey to Dream: Provides safe, caring, supportive environments where teens can safely wrestle with big issues, develop critical coping skills and plan for their futures. They plan on purchasing laptops for their kids. They’ll use these laptops for distance counseling and homework.
Lovepacs Lewisville: Provides meals to students, who would otherwise go hungry during school holidays. While their food is donated by the community, they need packaging for food distribution.  These funds will help pay for the boxes, tape and bags they send home with the kids.
PediplaceThey are on a mission to make healthcare a reality for every kid. Because all too often, families assume they cannot access quality care if they are uninsured, or use Medicaid or CHIP benefits. We will use the funds to support healthcare services for children. In 2024, they expect to provide primary pediatric healthcare services to an estimated 6,022 patients.
She Supply: They provide a sense of dignity & cleanliness to women by suppling feminine hygiene products to those in need. The project is a campus distribution plan of sanitary pads to Title 1 schools within LISD (Lewisville ISD). They have identified Title 1 middle schools to include Delay, Huffines, Hedrick, Griffin, Durham and Lakeview. They have identified Title 1 High schools to include Lewisville HS, The Colony HS, Killough 9th-10th grade campus, Harmon 9th-10th grade campus and the Lewisville Learning Center. They’re partnering with a vendor to provide pads for distribution to students through nursing staff, social work and counseling staff in a pilot.
Special Abilities of North Texas: Empowering Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities through Individualized Skills and Socialization Support.  They plan to use the funds to upgrade the facility’s signage and accessibility. Our Rotary is looking a a building project with them for later this year.
