In lieu of purchasing garters and mums for this year’s Homecoming celebration, the cheerleaders of Dallas’ Woodrow Wilson High School chose to make a difference by making an impactful donation to one of the school’s neighbors: The Ebby House at Juliette Fowler Communities.
Not only did these thoughtful young leaders deliver a check for $400 to benefit the innovative new transitional community for young women who have aged out of foster care, they brought a vase of yellow (Ebby’s favorite color!) roses to decorate the beautiful new home.
The Ebby House, named after our founder and favorite philanthropist Ebby Halliday Acers, is home to young women ages 18-24 as they make the transition from foster care to living independently. The Ebby House offers them a home to live in and mentors to love them while they learn to become self-reliant and entrepreneurial — volunteers and mentors themselves — reflecting the values and life of Ebby Halliday.
