The Dallas Junior Forum gave $25,000 in aid to several local nonprofits that were damaged during last month’s winter storm, according to a press release.

The organization, which started in 1977, works to provide services and financial aid to children, families and the elderly in the Dallas area.

Grants were not offered this year, but the money for the winter storm repairs came from the Dallas Junior Forum’s Benevolent Fund, which is meant to offer special and emergency help.

Nonprofits that received help from the forum include: Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center; The Family Place; Juliette Fowler Communities, including Ebby House; Hope’s Door New Beginning Center; Network of Community Ministries; and The Ronald McDonald House of Dallas.

“We are sadly aware of the impact and burden this historic storm has had on our Agency Partners, especially in the midst of the pandemic, and these funds will go directly to them to help recover,” DJF President Julie Crowley says in a press release. “In addition to our regular efforts and programs with our agencies, DJF will continue to assess ongoing storm aid needs.”
