United Way of Metropolitan Dallas

Tocqueville Society

My wife, Susan, and I took time to evaluate where we wanted to give our money. With two grandchildren, we decided children would be our focus. As we began to see what United Way was doing several years ago, we knew we wanted to be part of that work.—Ralph Hawkins, HKS, Inc.
