In 2017, CFT hosted 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 was held on September 11, we were 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 to host several volunteer projects and create impact at nonprofits across North Texas.
