The Medford Team is always looking to share upcoming events that help contribute to our local community. This month, we’re spotlighting a Live Auction with the purpose of raising money for the purchase of children’s gifts this holiday season.
We all know what a difficult time it has been for businesses and families alike throughout the global pandemic. It is a blessing to both the giver and the receiver, as well as to the community, to be able to help one another when we need it most. This auction is sure to be a fun time and will help contribute to a great cause!
Overcoming a cancer diagnosis is something worth celebrating, and what better way to celebrate and form lifelong friendships than with others who have gone through the same thing. Our featured community event for the month of June is a free tennis class for women cancer survivors, hosted by Cancer StrongHER.
Here is the event post via EventBrite:
In partnership with The Birch Racquet and Lawn Club and Keller Alliance Tennis Charter (KATCH), Cancer StrongHER is excited to bring free tennis classes to female cancer survivors! Classes are for female survivors of ALL cancers and are completely free-of-charge. Whether you are a beginner, an experienced player, or somewhere in between, we have the session just for you. We will provide the balls for everyone and loaner racquets for beginners. If you have a racquet, please bring it. Make sure to bring water and dress appropriately for the weather. Please watch our Facebook page and website closely for weather cancellations. To adhere to social distancing protocol, we are limited to 8 beginner players and 8 experienced players, so please reserve your spot quickly via Eventbrite, and please only register once per person. If you find the class is full, you will be placed on a waiting list to fill any cancellations. Summer classes will take place indoors. Let’s play some tennis!

This year has been a difficult one for many families across Texas, the US, and around the world. The uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented loss of jobs, creating an unexpected struggle for many families. Each month, we like to share local community events and services that benefit those in need. This month, we’re spotlighting Just Between Friends (JBF) – a pop-up consignment shop with a commitment to helping families access clothing and other items for their children at an affordable price. Shoppers can find clothing, shoes, nursery gear, bath time essentials, safety must-haves, swings, bouncy chairs, strollers, highchairs, pack’n’plays, and more at a fraction of the cost in most retail stores.
We recently shared a post for a local blood drive that could help save lives and greatly benefit those that are facing serious health issues due to COVID-19. If you missed HDNP’s blood drive back in June, now’s your chance to donate! They are hosting another blood drive, coming up in September:
Help for Desperately Needy People International’s next blood donation event is scheduled for Saturday, September 19, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM in front of Prosperity Bank in South Arlington: 4100 S Bowen Rd, Arlington, TX 76016. This will mark the organization’s 40th blood drive, and they are hoping to make it a good one!

There is something to be said about non-profit organizations that selflessly offer a helping hand to those in need. At Medford Design-Build, we aim to support these local organizations by spreading awareness of their upcoming fundraising events.
This month, we would like to spotlight the Jaxon Anthony Memorial Foundation of Mansfield, TX. This heartfelt organization was created to honor the memory of Jeffrey and Ashley Arnold’s son, Jaxon Anthony Arnold, who was born and passed on July 9, 2012. The foundation gives financial support to families suffering an unexpected infant loss or stillbirth by assisting with the infant burial costs at Skyvue Memorial Gardens in Mansfield, where Jaxon was laid to rest.
