North Texas Food Bank Says ‘Thanks’



Representatives of the North Texas Food Bank recently paid a special visit to Founder and Chairman of the Board Ebby Halliday to say “happy birthday” and to express their appreciation for Ebby Halliday Realtors’ support of the food bank at a particularly critical time. Jasmin Holmstrup, director of corporate engagement, and Laura Hoagland, corporate engagement manager, presented Ebby with a framed thank-you note from the food bank and a child’s drawing expressing gratitude, and some home-baked cookies!


Last fall, at about the same time Ebby Halliday Realtors was highlighting its “The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home” promotion, the North Texas Food Bank issued a call to action to area businesses to increase their support. We’re proud to say each of Ebby’s 25 North Texas offices, as well as the company’s corporate office, enthusiastically responded by donating and collecting thousands of pounds of non-perishable food items.


During the NTFB representatives’ visit with Ebby, Ms. Holmstrup reported that Ebby Halliday Realtors had helped provide approximately 24,000 meals for hungry North Texans. Adding fun to the visit, Ms. Holmstrup brought her daughter, Kyra, to meet Ebby and the two immediately hit it off, discussing hats, school, and more.
