Thank you for your generous NTGD support!

Thanks to our generous DAPS supporters, the 2016 North Texas Giving Day was a great success! We received 246 donations for a total of $25,363 raised!

It was a very exciting day. Our Administrative Associate, Jill, and two volunteers, Barbara and Diana, manned the phones and enjoyed speaking with so many members eager to support DAPS.

Our purpose is to impact and improve the lives of those affected by Parkinson's disease, and your generous support is what keeps us going!

Thank you
