A Season of Giving

Ridgeview Ranch is a diverse neighborhood wih homeowners representing many different countries, cultures and faiths, but we come together in some amazing ways!  2013 has been another year of giving for our vendors, business owners and homeowners alike!  I would like to take a moment to recognize all of the wonderful ways our community has benefited from some amazing folks and how we have worked together to benefit others!

The One Warm Coat Drive sponsored and coodinated by Liz Aviles of VIP Realty gathered bags and bags of coats for people in need in the DFW area.  Special thanks to the residents who collected coats at their places of business, and Anderson Elementary who donated unclaimed items from lost-and-found.  Our goal was 100 coats – we exceeded our goal for sure!  Anderson Elementary families also helped Frisco ISD give the gift of Christmas to 1200 families in need through their Small World Angel program.  Thanks to resident Jennifer Williams for coordinating Anderson’s efforts!

The Ridgeview Ranch landscaping team, Lindsey’s Lawn & Landscaping also pitched in this season by donating some of the cost for updated holiday lights at each entrance monument.  Our Beautification Committee chair, Duke Bond with the help of his artistic and talented wife Densie, did a fantastic job coordinating, judging and creating signs for the Halloween and Holiday decorating contests this season as well.

But Fall and Winter are only a small portion of all the giving that takes place during the year.  I would like to take a moment to thank all of our volunteers, sponsors and staff for all of the time, dollars and efforts they put into making our neighborhood a wonderful place to live.
