and North Texas Food Bank received $4,000 each, and Compassion Corsicana received $3,000 in relief aid.

“The COVID-19 pandemic caused distress for many in the communities where we work and live,” Elizabeth Harvey, the Sundt Foundation’s North Texas board member, said in a news release. “Our Foundation board made a swift decision to donate $200,000 in relief aid to over 20 nonprofits across our nine geographic markets, including three here in the Metroplex.”

In addition to providing COVID-19 donations, Sundt’s project team building a new administrative building for Denton County volunteered with Serve Denton, a local nonprofit organization, to help get food and supplies delivered to high-risk individuals and their families.

“Thank you so much to the employees at Sundt Construction! Together, we will get through this crisis stronger,” said Erin Fincher, director of foundation relations at North Texas Food Bank.

Additional grant recipients include Cumberland Presbyterian Children’s Home, HopeKids North Texas, Mid-Cities Care Corps, Miracle Fields of DFW Inc. and PTSD Foundation of America.
