In a show of solidarity and continued public servitude, the Misdemeanor Division and the Vehicular Crimes Unit (VCU) of the Dallas County Criminal District Attorney’s Office have collectively raised a substantial $2,000 to support MADD North Texas. These two dedicated units set out on a mission to make a meaningful impact for an organization with a direct correlation to many of the cases they handle.
Dollar by Dollar
The Misdemeanor Division began their philanthropic journey in January of 2023. As prosecutors primarily focused on cases involving Driving While Intoxicated, they are acutely aware of the importance of the efforts put forth by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and are deeply appreciative of what the organization does for victims of intoxication offenses. Therefore, they decided to center their efforts around participating in the Walk Like MADD North Texas 5K event, held on October 14th, 2023.
To boost their fundraising efforts, the Misdemeanor Division placed MADD donation bins within their workspaces, encouraging their colleagues to contribute their loose change or dollars to support the cause. Often sweetening the motivation to donate with accompanying treats or donuts, they managed to raise a remarkable $900 for MADD North Texas.
The Dallas County District Attorney's Office Vehicular Crimes Unit also demonstrated their commitment to MADD by participating in the Walk Like MADD event, a tradition they have upheld for years. Members of the Unit signed up with the goal of raising a minimum of $1,000. Through their combined efforts, the VCU raised an additional $1,100, significantly bolstering the resources available to MADD North Texas.
Supporting a Worthy Mission
The collective efforts of these two units have had a significant impact, resulting in a total of $2,000 raised for MADD North Texas. Both sections of the office recognize the gravity of MADD's mission and the immense positive impact the organization has on the community.
This successful fundraising drive not only ensures that MADD North Texas can continue its crucial work but also stands as a heartwarming example of the difference that a committed community can make in the lives of those affected by intoxication offenses.
