                    CARING FOR AMERICA PROJECT   

January is Human Trafficking Awareness month.  TFRW is fighting Human Trafficking right here in Texas and hosted a statewide service project encouraging every club in TFRW to participate.  The goal was to assemble (at their January board  meeting) “first response”  kits for the victims/survivors of human trafficking.  Our club supported this project by sending a donation to be used in purchasing supplies for the backpacks.  This project was a huge success.

At our general meeting in October 2018, we were honored to have Captain Toby Hecker speak to us on the subject of Human Trafficking.   Please see below information that was included in his presentation.
