As a business and as individuals, we are committed to being a part of activities that will help to sustain our community – its business economy, its neighborhoods, its character, and its citizens. We accomplish this through volunteer hours, sponsorships and advertising dollars, membership in local groups, and leadership development initiatives. Whether it is a donation to Circle Ten of the Boy Scouts of America, a sponsorship in Garland's "Arts in Action" newsletter, or serving on boards of non-profit organizations, we believe it is our privilege and responsibility to be a servant leader.

If you have the time or interest, take a moment to visit the website homes of organizations that are among those we serve in some way. They each play a special role in this community we call "North Texas". Should you like to have more information about how you might become involved with any of the groups, please contact us. We'll be happy to share information with you.

"Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character.
But if you must be without one, be without strategy."
