The Company and the Guild joined forces to reach out to our struggling, exhausted colleagues at the Dallas Morning News to let them know they were in our hearts and minds.
Melissa Tkach talked to their managing editor who put her in touch with their Linda Parker (although no one has Linda Parker like us). Melissa said we were thinking of them and wanted to donate $300 to a restaurant of their choice to help feed the troops.
The timing couldn’t have been better–they had just ordered $700 of fajitas from their favorite nearby restaurant for the newsroom, so we paid for nearly half of it!
They were overwhelmingly thankful and appreciative and said our act of kindness and solidarity had touched them at a time they really needed it.
