VISTA Member Helps Agency Raise Big Money

image1.JPGWoman to Woman Pregnancy Resource Center is a non-profit agency in Denton, TX that is dedicated to empowering individuals and families to make wise life choices financially, relationally, and sexually through the provision of resources and education.

On Thursday, November 5, 2015, guests from the Denton community gathered for the agency’s annual fundraising banquet. The annual banquet focused on the past year’s accomplishments and educated the attendees about the future ministry goals. VISTA member, Marissa Castilleja had an integral role in this year’s banquet. Managing volunteers to assemble centerpieces and execute the registration process, design of the programs and slideshow, and setting up and tearing down the event were just a few crucial roles that the VISTA coordinated.

Proceeds raised at the banquet will assist with funding of education programs and free medical services to uninsured and economically disadvantaged women and families in Denton, TX.

However, arguably the most important contribution by Marissa was the fact that 400 community figures were educated and informed about the role that Woman To Woman plays and the impact the organization continues to have in Denton, Texas.

Woman to Woman Pregnancy Resource Center is a partner agency of the VISTA North Texas Project.
