To make a statement about its 10th anniversary year, Stuart Bacon in Fort Worth, Texas, has made it a point-well, make it
10 points-to give something back to the community that has kept it going for the past decade.
The shop has volunteered pro bono services to 10 local
nonprofit organizations this year in an extra effort to help its Cowtown neighbors.
Kim Speairs, an agency representative, said the number of pro bono clients was purposeful in marking the shop's milestone and supporting its most "concerted effort" yet in helping nonprofits.
The agency is aiding groups like the Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival, Lena Pope Home, Preservation Texas, the AIDS Outreach Center, the Amon Carter Museum, the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and the Women's Center of Fort Worth.
"These organizations successfully provide vital services in our community," said agency principal Jim Stuart. "We wanted to celebrate our success during the past 10 years by contributing to their success." -Glen Fest
