AUSTIN, TEXAS (PRWEB) June 29, 2013
The Dallas personal injury law firm chose to donate to the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas because it found the nonprofit organization’s goals admirable, said David Crowe, an attorney on the W.T. Johnson team. The organization has a set of three community-transformation goals that it would like to achieve by 2020.
As part of its United 2020 campaign, the organization plans to prepare 60 percent of high school graduates for success in post-high school education. To do this, the organization is funding early childhood programs to give preschoolers access to high-quality education and afterschool and summer programs for older children to extend and enrich the education they receive during the school day.
Additionally, the United 2020 plan calls for the organization to move 250,000 Dallas-area residents out of poverty permanently by providing better access to jobs, job skills training and financial education programs.
The plan also calls for improving community health across the region by expanding access to preventative care and promoting healthy lifestyles to decrease rates of obesity, substance abuse and family violence.
“The United Way of Metropolitan Dallas makes our area better for everyone who lives here,” Crowe said. “We’re proud to support their efforts to make Dallas a stronger community.”
