The Denton Community Food Center opened its new location Feb. 10 and two days later received a $20,000 donation from the CoServ Charitable Foundation. The grant from CCF’s Operation Roundup will help purchase food supplies for the organization’s 10,500-square-foot space on Loop 288.
Since its founding in 2004, CCF has donated $58,930 to Denton Community Food Center.
CCF also visited Serve Denton where they presented a $9,868.62 grant to pay for video equipment. The equipment be will available for various nonprofits in the area to use to make videos that spread awareness and get their message out to the community.
Serve Denton is a 32,500 square foot one-stop shop of nonprofits so people, many of whom have limited access to transportation, don’t have to travel to multiple places to get help.
Serve Denton works with more than a dozen nonprofits, including Youth & Family Counseling, who also got a grant from CCF this month, Giving Hope Inc. and Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County. CCF has contributed $44,455.40 to Serve Denton since 2004.
The CoServ Charitable Foundation focuses on providing basic human needs, promoting community vitality and supporting education. Since CCF was established in 2004, about $12 million has been distributed to worthy causes across North Texas. Funding for most of the grants comes from CoServ customers through Operation Roundup®—a program where customers “round up” their monthly utility bill to the nearest dollar.
