NTBA and Dallas Foundation donate to FOCUS USA Project CARE
The FOCUS USA Team engaged with the business community to raise awareness of its national emergency response efforts and new initiatives around building partnerships to coordinate disaster recovery support to local communities in the aftermath of emergencies including tornadoes, floods, and severe storms.
To continue building on these discussions, in June 2023, FOCUS USA met with the newly appointed Board Members of NTBA to partner on the new Project Community Assistance for Resilience in Emergencies (Project CARE), an initiative to provide cash vouchers and in-kind support to disaster impacted local communities. Furthermore, NTBA and the Dallas Foundation provided a generous donation to FOCUS USA towards Project CARE and its objectives.
NTBA is a cooperative and part of the North American Trade Association (NATA) and serves convenience store and gasoline station owners by equipping them with bulk purchasing power, industry know-how, and the right connections to strengthen business practices and effectively compete in the market.
