The Fannin County Children’s Center was thrilled to accept a donation of $22,000 from TXB (formerly Kwik Chek) and McCraw Oil and Propane recently. This check was one of several being delivered around the state by Sherry Capehart, on behalf of the two companies.
This gift was part of the proceeds from the 26th annual Doyce Taylor Memorial McCraw Oil & Propane/TXB Golf Tournament and 5th Annual Fishing Tournament held in May 2022. Over the past 14 years, this TXB and McCraw Oil have raised $787,000 for CASA programs across the state.
“What an honor it was for myself and a few team members to present the check at Justice Is Served, Dancing Through The Decades,” said Sherry Capehart. “We strongly believe in giving back to the communities that we service, especially when children are involved. We look forward to the support we can provide in the future, through our Round UP For Change Campaign, starting again next month at our TXB sites and our annual fishing and golf tournaments.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to accept this very generous donation!” said Sandy Barber of the Children’s Center. “The folks at McCraw Oil and TXB are wonderful. Not only do they host this tournament each year, they also serve on our board, volunteer at our center and always answer our calls for help. We are grateful for their partnership. They truly do live up to their motto of “leave ‘em better.”
CASA, which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates, recruits and trains volunteers to become advocates for children in foster care. When a judge determines that a child is no longer safe in their own home, CASA is assigned to gather information and make recommendations to the courts about what would be best for the child.
The gift to the Children’s Center will support children in foster care by providing trained volunteer advocates. To learn more about the Children’s Center, go to www.FanninCCC.org.
