How it all started...
After the shootings in Dallas on July 7, 2016, several women with close ties to the law enforcement community felt compelled to do something to help the victims. By July 10th, over 25 women had gathered and Backing The Blue - Denton was born! Within the week a committee created a private Facebook group with over 150 members, designed our logo, solicited donations from local businesses and recruited volunteers.
Just two short weeks later, Backing The Blue - Denton hosted a car wash and sold over 400 T-shirts to raise money for the victims of the Dallas, DART, and El Centro PDs. Over 50 volunteers assisted to make this event an amazing success! The support and generosity of our local community was overwhelming. We raised thousands to donate to the victims and their families. We truly thank everyone who contributed physically and financially. We could not have done it without you!
