Leading up to North Texas Giving Day (NTGD), RST will be hosting virtual community events so our donors, volunteers and partners across North Texas can make the MOST of NTGD!
You are officially invited to join the countdown and be part of RST's 40+ year tradition of giving a BIG Texas Welcome to our new neighbors, sending the message that ALL ARE WELCOME.
