Note from the President
To date, we have raised and delivered funds and flowers to 5 staff members, teachers, and a School Resource Officer. THIS is what we built this non-profit to accomplish. THIS is our sole purpose. To bring the community together to demonstrate love through financial support for our Carroll ISD staff when they need it most. So thank YOU! Thank you for partnering with us. Whether you have donated directly to a staff member, donated to the general fund, sponsored an event, volunteered, or worn your Dragons Care shirt around town - YOU ALL are the reason that Dragons Care is successful. We do not have an annual gala - we are strictly a needs-based organization - here to partner with our community and connect you with the needs that are given to us by the staff. So we are very grateful that we have been able to start doing that work.
The most important thing you can do each month in this newsletter is to click on each need and read the stories of the staff members and consider giving no matter the size of the gift. EVERYTHING that you give goes directly to them. We spent months researching the very best non-profit website to use and this one takes nothing away from our staff. All you have to do is pay the minimal credit card fee (and, by the way, you are not required to tip). We turn around and give that exact amount raised for level 4 needs to the staff.
Additionally, we are thrilled to announce our new partnership with Dragon Blooms, the floral design program run by the Carroll Senior High School students. So every time we drop off a check to a staff member, we are also able to give them a beautiful arrangement made by our students right here at CISD.
Again, I just want to thank all of you, from our sponsors to our supporters, for EVERYTHING you are doing for our staff at CISD. Continue to invite your friends to join our social media platforms, continue to spread the word, and conitune to encourage staff to utilize this program. We are here for THEM.
Sincerest appreciation and gratitude,

Pink Out Tailgate Supports both Dragon Football
& Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Dragons Care was proud to host a community tailgate at the highly-anticipated Pink Out football game at Dragon Stadium. This event marked not only an energetic display of school spirit but also provided awareness of breast cancer. Unfortunately, many of our staff members have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the past, and they have trusted us to help them with the mounting costs of defeating it. So, we were honored to have this event to celebrate them and all those who are in the battle, those who have overcome it, and comfort those who have lost family members.
The Pink Out game, a cherished tradition, is an opportunity for students, families, and community members to come together, enjoy food, and build camaraderie before cheering for our Dragons on the field. Dragons Care was right at the heart of it all, setting up a welcoming booth with activities and games. By participating in this event, we were able to raise awareness about Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a cause close to the hearts of many.
This event would not have been possible without the support of the following sponsors:
Please support these local businesses because they have gone above and beyond in supporting our Southlake community!
Homecoming Carnival & Parade:
Showcasing School and Community Pride
Dragons Care was proud to be a part of this year's homecoming carnival! The event celebrated school spirit and community unity, and Dragons Care was front and center in the festivities.
The Dragons Care team, along with volunteers, brought their
energy and commitment to the carnival, showcasing their dedication to
