Here's what our Grant Recipients are saying...
The Firehouse Theatre
The Firehouse Theatre was fortunate to be able to utilize some of the grant funds from The Civic League to provide 5 full scholarships and 3 partial scholarships for financially challenged students to participate in Annie JR., which ran on our stage March 4-8 for 6 performances. This was the last show at the theatre prior to closing the Company due to COVID-19. The show was a full musical with great costumes, sets, projections, and props and all 6 shows were sold out. Without these funds from The Civic League, 8 financially challenged students probably would not have been able to be a part of this great show. We are so thankful for your continued support and look forward to when we can safely reopen and use the balance of funds to help more students produce Firehouse JR shows.

Children's Advocacy Center for Denton County
Since 2006, The Civic League has donated over $37,000 to Children's Advocacy Center for Denton County. This year, you generously awarded $5,000 to the Rainbow Room. The Rainbow Room is immediate, material support for families in crisis. When children must be removed from their home for safety, the Rainbow Room is there to provide outfits, shoes, and coats. When a mother cannot go home to escape a predator, the Rainbow Room is there with non-perishable groceries, cleaning supplies, clothing for the entire family, and hygiene items.
Metrocrest Services and The Civic League have been partners in our community for over 36 years. The funding provided to us over the years has enabled us to service families in need. Their recent funding of our Home Delivered Meals program, which provides hot meals to homebound seniors, ensured the delivery of over 2,000 nutritious meals to our most vulnerable neighbors to keep them healthy. Metrocrest Services, and other local nonprofits that are supported through the efforts of The Civic League, rely of their monetary support each year. With the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, your support of The Civic League is now more important than ever. We are grateful and proud to call The Civic League one of our longest and most trusted partners in the community.
