Traffick911
 
Traffick911 is a North Texas-based non-profit organization existing to free youth from sex trafficking by building trust-based relationships.
 
Founded in 2009, Traffick911 frees youth from sex trafficking by building trust-based relationships. This is accomplished through its flagship Voice & Choice Program which provides 24/7 crisis response, field-based advocacy, and specialized case management for child sex trafficking victims alongside law enforcement and community multi-disciplinary team partners.
 
The scope of child sex trafficking in North Texas currently outweighs the resources available to address it. Through Traffick911’s support of more than 2,000 survivors over 12 years, there has been a continuous pattern noted: victims are not receiving the specialized services they need and the emotional support for long-term healing. This often leads to victims returning to a life of exploitation. 
 
Growing up in the Navy, Kristi Roye’s relationship building started at a young age. Moving every couple of years, she was tasked with learning new places, building friendships, and relying on her strong values. Throughout her life, relationships became the core of who she is – developing a passion for helping people regardless of their life circumstances. Her nonprofit career expands almost 15 years and has led her to organizations focused on marginalized populations, youth, and social justice issues - many pointing to the intersectional issues within child sex trafficking. Through her experiences, and by recognizing that there are so many pressing needs in our own backyards, Kristi finds the most joy in connecting people to the causes they care about – asking them to volunteer, lead, give, or serve to make their world a better place - and dropping love bombs on them when they do!
On December 6, 2022, members of the Addison Midday Rotary Club helped prepare the Metrocrest Services Holiday Store to open for the season.  We helped setup, organize and sort the items.
 
The Metrocrest Holiday Store is located at 11888 Marsh Lane, Suite 408, Dallas, TX 75244. 
 
(This is a new location, and not the same location as in past years.)

Thanks, Kelvin, for Organizing the event!

On October 12, 2022, the Addison Midday Rotary Club donated 12 cases of XL gloves to the Addison Fire Department.  One of our club members owns European Wax Centers in Dallas, including the one in Addison.  Her glove supplier mistakenly sent her the XL gloves.  When she contacted them about the mistake, she was told to keep the gloves.  Since no one on her staff uses the XL gloves, she donated them to the Addison Midday Rotary Club who donated them to the Addison Fire Department, who will put them to good use.
 
The Addison Fire Department uses almost exclusively XL gloves.  12 cases are 120 boxes of gloves.
 
Thank you, European Wax Centers!
