Charity Week 2018: Charities Supported

Charity Week

Students participate in various activities and events throughout the week to raise money for three charities selected by the Junior class.

Guide Dogs of Texas is a charity that increases the freedom, mobility, and independence of Texans who are visually impaired by providing them with quality guide dogs for $1.

Rays of Light is a charity dedicated to providing free, quality respite care to families who have children with special needs, across the spectrum, in the Dallas metropolitan area.

Both of these charities were chosen because they support life beyond conception. These charities align well with our UD mission to respect all life because they minister to the disenfranchised and their caregivers in essential, practical ways.
