Berenson Injury Law proudly donated to three of its favorite non-profit organizations today. Their budgets have unfortunately been slashed due to the pandemic.

Humane Society of North Texas

This wonderful organization has been a great place for North Texas residents to go to adopt dogs, cats, horses, and other animals. Just in the first three months this year, it arranged over 3,200 adoptions and investigated 200 acts of animal cruelty. That’s remarkable.

TAFBBill Berenson donated 2,500 meals yesterday to the Tarrant Area Food Bank to help support its largest-ever distribution.

TAFB served 1,500 families which had lined up at Dickies Arena. Members of the Texas Air National Guard loaded dairy products, meat, and dried food into each vehicle.

And as if that were not great enough, TAFB was also providing food at four other locations around Fort Worth.

Bill Berenson has always strongly believed in community service and his law firm again made a donation to the Tarrant Area Food Bank.

Why he supports the Food Bank

This incredible non-profit organization performs so many critically needed jobs here in the Tarrant County area including

  • collecting and distributing food to those in need,
  • providing disaster relief,
  • teaching nutrition education,
  • ensuring that seniors have access to nutritious foods, and
  • helping people apply for SNAP and other government programs

Most of the Food Bank’s items are donated by grocery stores and other partners in the food industry. Companies, individuals and farmers help out tremendously. They have a small army of volunteers who collect, sort, box and carry the food to distribution points across 13 counties in North Texas.

The TAFB distributes perishable items like dairy and produce and also canned fruits and vegetables, rice, and peanut butter. An incredible 26 million pounds of fruits and vegetables were distributed last year. Unsold food is donated so it is not wasted.

The TAFB is top-rated by the Charity Navigator since it gives out almost all (95%) of the money and items collected and keeps its administrative costs to a minimum.

And it was started in 1982 – the same year Mr. Berenson opened his personal injury law firm in Fort Worth. He has maintained his primary office there in the 11-story Westbend One Tower on University Drive overlooking the Trinity River, just down the street from NTFB’s headquarters and warehouse.

On Saturday morning my firm again sponsored the Cowtown Marathon’s wonderful C.A.L.F. Run. I have done this for the past seven years and always love supporting the C.A.L.F. Program. It has been rated as the top running event for children in the country and the Marathon as the best one in Texas and it’s easy to see why.

It was an honor to present the Marathon’s huge check with our fantastic Mayor Betsy Price and board member David Williams.

It was a fun morning. Over 800 school children and adults came to the the Coyote Drive-In first thing to run and walk on the Trinity River with their schools and friends. Party music was blaring and everyone was having a great time. Kids danced the Macarena and ran around. The start line showed how excited they were when the gun went off.
