The North Texas Chapter of RCI celebrated its seventh annual holiday event at The Ranch in Las Colinas, TX. Approximately 50 attendees shared in the festivities, and over 100 toys were collected to be donated to SafeHaven of Tarrant County.

SafeHaven is the largest and most comprehensive agency in Tarrant County providing services at no cost to domestic violence victims. SafeHaven’s mission is to end domestic violence through safety, support, prevention, and social change. The North Texas Chapter is honored to help support the families within this great organization for the second year in a row.
