UCR Adopts 10 Families in Need from DFW Area Women’s Shelters
DALLAS, Texas, December 18, 2014 — UCR Dallas, a leading retail real estate services provider, spread holiday cheer this season by adopting 10 families in need from the DFW area.
UCR adopted four families from the Genesis Women’s Shelter, three families from The Family Place and three families from CASA; and in total, UCR was able to bring holiday cheer to 51 children and their parents. This is the fourth year that UCR has forgone its annual holiday party to donate and fulfill wish lists for families struggling this holiday season.
Paige Fink, Executive Director of The Family Place, states, “The annual UCR Adopt-a-Family day provides victims of domestic violence with items that are needed. It is breath-taking that the partners of the firm and the employees would much rather give back to those in need than spend money on a company party. It is people like you and your staff that make a difference in the lives of the families at The Family Place.”
UCR employees split into 10 teams and each team shopped and wrapped presents for each family. Items purchased for the families included toys, clothing, tickets to area museums and other events and basic household items.
Jean Smith, Managing Partner for UCR Dallas, states, “It’s encouraging seeing how this event has grown year after year. The employees look forward to this event and many go above and beyond by donating on top of what UCR gives for each family. We only hope it continues to grow and we are able to help more in need.”
