This past year has given everyone the opportunity to find ways to give back within our own communities. You know us – we’re always trying to find new ways to give back to people all over North Texas, and this last month, we decided to focus on those individuals who were also finding ways to be helpful, too.
Dyann, from Watauga, reached out to us and asked if we could surprise the staff and caretakers at Heritage House. She wrote in, “Please do something for the workers at Heritage house long term care in Keller. My daughter is an RN there and has worked tirelessly to take care of the residents through the pandemic. I know she is exhausted and would love it if something special was done for the staff there.” We treated the entire staff to lunch, and even gave Kaitlynn a special gift to show that we appreciated everything she is doing to ensure her patients are safe and healthy. She’s getting a special spa day so she can have a little relaxation. Dyann shared, “Thank you so much for all you did to make it a special day for everyone!”
Jim S. runs Feed a Hero, an organization that honors our first responders every day of the year, and whose mission is to support all DFW Police Officers, Firefighters, and our EMS Personnel. We partnered with Jim and helped get more meals to a few of the local Texas State Troopers and the Denton Fire Department. We look forward to continuing to help Feed a Hero feed more heroes throughout North Texas!
We learned about Tutt High School in Sanger, which runs a student-led grocery store for struggling families where good deeds are accepted as payment. The store is run by students who manage the inventory, stock the shelves and help other students find and bag the products they need. Students and families within the school district are able to buy whatever items they need using points, which are allocated based on the size of their families. Students can then earn more points by volunteering on campus, mentoring other students, or raising their grades, to name a few examples. But we learned there were a few things that the student store could use a little help with, so our Helpful Honda guys stopped by with a special surprise for the student volunteers.
We produced street signs to notify the community of when the store is open and we also provided all of the volunteers with official shirts – so people visiting know who to look for if they need help while in the store. But that’s not all. We donated gas gift cards to the store so that everyone can get a little extra help on the road. “You made us all so happy. Thank you.”
What’s next for us? A few lucky teachers could receive a Random Act of Helpfulness! If you know a teacher that is going above and beyond, let us know! You can reach out to us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram., or at NTXHondaDealers.com/Help.
