Donation Drive for the 6th Annual North Texas Giving Day

The International Museum of Cultures in collaboration with the Duncanville Outreach Center hosted a Donation Drive kick-off event last Thursday, September 18th for the 6th Annual North Texas Giving Day! From 7 am to 9 am in the IMC parking lot, free donuts and coffee were provided to those who stopped by and donations were accepted. For those who were unable to visit the museum, supporters were given the opportunity to donate online until midnight that day.

 

NTX Giving Day - Sept 18

 

The turn out for the event at the International Museum of Cultures was great! It was wonderful to see people coming together to consume copious amounts of delicious donuts and coffee for breakfast and offer their moral and monetary support to the local non-profit organizations striving to make a difference in their community. Not only did locals from the Duncanville and Dallas areas gather together to support organizations in their region, but well over 98,000 donations poured in from all 50 states, 6 territories and over 28 different countries across the globe to benefit 1,580 unique, non-profits.  Due to the numerous online donations as well as the performances and community events – such as the International Museum of Culture’s donation drive – spurring an awareness of need and excitement to lend support all over, this year was record breaking for the North Texas Giving Day!
