HCCAC, law enforcement heroes to area children

Something as simple as taking a moment for a conversation with a child can make a world of difference in that child’s life. Children are special little people and need to be treated as such; they need to know they are important and we as a society need to help them realize this by taking the time to show them how much they mean to us.

I built strong bonds with many children throughout seven years working in the childcare field and learned so much about their little minds in that time.

Residents of Burnet County who contribute to The Phoenix Center during its current capital campaign could see their gift leveraged into an even larger amount, thanks to two separate matching pledges by supporters of the Marble Falls-based center.

Marble Falls resident Robert Ruff has pledged to match, dollar for dollar, donations made to the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization through Jan. 10, 2017, up to a maximum amount matched of $300,000. This includes contributions received through charitable organizations.
