  • Fannin-Grayson Peace Project sold pies and cheesecakes before the holidays and raised $333 for the playground.
  • A group of friends planned a Party with a Purpose for New Year’s Eve and raised $460 for the playground.
  • Ask your friends & family!  One individual set out to find 10 friends to give $100 each.  Another individual set out to find 50 friends to give $20 each.  Both are nearing their goal of personally raising $1,000 for our playground!
  • Give in memory of loved ones.  One local family asked for donations to the playground in lieu of flowers when their loved one passed away.
  • Frazier Carpet Cleaning has pledged to donate $10 from each cleaning job from now til Feb 28, 2014.  Give them a call at (903) 583-1602.
