North Texas Giving Day

Our handcycling program is growing and more handcycles are needed especially for youths. Replacement equipment is always needed for camping, tubing, fishing, archery, our boats and office. Turning POINT provides all equipment needs at all events. Because our events  are free to participants and their families, monies are also needed for food and supplies at each event, lease of archery lanes and pontoon marina fees each month throughout the year.
