This year, Entrepreneurs For North Texas will be hosting its 16th Annual Freedom Day, a community service event honoring the lives lost and those forever changed by the tragic events of September 11, 2001. While the main event will be held on Monday, September 11, we are delighted to offer a Freedom Day for Family and Kids edition on Saturday, September 9 this year. Last year, we were excited to have over 750 volunteers from over 55 organizations that worked at more than 15 different project sites across DFW. We partnered with 12 different nonprofit organizations and 11 Veteran organizations. This year as well, we will partner with Veteran organizations across DFW to host several volunteer projects and create impact at nonprofits across North Texas.
