QUICK UPDATES FROM AFSC HQ
 

North Texas Giving Day was a great success. Thanks so much to those of you who participated by donating, telling friends, and volunteering at events. This year, AFSC raised $37,000 through individual donations, a foundation gift, and matching funds from Lone Star Communications.
