Civic Organizations

Grapevine Texas Civic Volunteer OrganizationsPublic-private cooperation in Grapevine flourishes because of civic pride. Many local fraternal organizations and civic clubs are truly dedicated to helping others. There always seems to be a benevolent reason for their existence.

It's been said that the best reason for living in Grapevine is the people. And that may be true. They are serving meals to the elderly, taking care of families in need, sharing resources, visiting military personnel at the DFW Airport, and working festival booths for good causes, just to name a few...

Seniors And Law Enforcement Together (S.A.L.T.)

The Grapevine Police Dept. participates with a non-profit organization known as S.A.L.T. (Seniors And Law Enforcement Together)

The S.A.L.T. Council's goal is to reduce the criminal victimization of older persons. It serves all seniors in Tarrant County.  One of their fund raising vehicles is cell phone recycling.  They collect old cell phones and send them to a recycling company for cash.  That money is used to fund different programs that benefit Tarrant County Senior Citizens.  The S.A.L.T. Council also distributes refurbished cell phones to Senior Citizens as 911 emergency phones.

If you have any old cell phones around that you'd like to donate please contact me and I'll make arrangements to pick them up.  The donation can just be the phone, a battery or the charger.  The recycling company will take them all.

Donations are accepted year round.

1000 Texan Trail
Northwest Hwy (Hwy 26) at Texan Trail
Grapevine, Texas 76051
817-439-5308

Dedicated on July 4, 2008, the memorial honors the professionals who crewed AA Flights 11 and 77 and UA Flights 93 and 175. The bronze memorial has five figures: two pilots, two flight attendants and a child representing the traveling pbulic. The figures are 14 feet high on an 18 foot base. It faces west on a compass rose, with the figures standing on a block of white Texas limestone. The names of the crew members of the 9/11 flights are engraved on slabs of granite surrounding the base. The memorial foundation donated this as a gift to the City of Grapevine, which incorporated it into its parks system, guaranteeing perpetual care and maintenance.

Dedicated to the 343 firefighters who lost their lives in the 9/11/2001 terrorist attack, this bronze statue was unveiled in Grapevine on 9/11/2013, sharing space with the 9/11 Flight Crew Memorial. The new memorial features a bronze firefighter kneeling with his head bowed in reverence and a granite monolith with the names of the 343 fallen firefighters.
