Annual Benefit A Great Success

Our Annual Benefit, held on May 16th, was our most successful ever. Over 300 friends of NDSM gathered at St. Monica Catholic Community to enjoy an evening of fellowship, fine food and wonderful music by Black Dirt Tango.

Our thanks go to the many individuals and organizations that made the night so memorable.

Thanks also go to TXU Energy for underwriting the event. Thanks to their generous participation, we were able to raise over $ 40,000 to continue our mission of serving the less fortunate who live among us. Stay tuned for next year!

Over Four Million Dollars!

We identified over $ 4.1 million in tax refunds while preparing 2,460 tax returns this year – both records! In addition to identifying refunds, we also saved our clients at least an estimated $ 369,000 in fees and helped them avoid the “instant refunds” that are actually extremely high interest loans.

By comparison, we filed 2,289 returns in 2013, identifying $ 3.2 million in refunds and saving clients at least $ 340,350 in fees.

We’d like to thank all the volunteers who generously donated their time and Foundation Communities for sponsoring our efforts.

Back-to-School Biggest Ever!

We saved deserving parents over $200,000 by providing school supplies and uniforms for the current school year. We distributed school supplies with a retail value over $82,000 to 2,981 children, and furnished two complete sets of uniforms valued at over $122,000 to 2,859 children. This was our most successful back-to-school ever.

Our success is due to the contributions of many groups and individuals. First, high school and college students processed applications over the summer. On distribution days we had extra help from St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and Northwood Women’s Club. And we received financial support from the Rees-Jones Foundation and the Simmons Foundation. Our thanks to everyone who helped these students get their year off to a good start.

Medical Professionals Needed

To meet the ongoing medical and dental needs of our clients, we could use more volunteer health professionals.

We need primary care providers including physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants in the areas of pediatrics, emergency medicine, internal medicine, family practice, and gynecology to support our existing clinics and to consider offering new services or expanded hours.

We need dentists, hygienists and technicians to expand the hours we keep open our newly remodeled three-chair dental clinic.

We provide the facilities, non-medical personnel and malpractice insurance.

Please help us get the word out.
