1. Get Texarkana the Money it Deserves!
The message from the cities and mayors to all citizens: Our population count will determine the amount of federal funding Texarkana receives over the next 10 years. An undercount would mean less money for health care, education, school nutrition, as well as other local needs like fire departments, roads, housing, and other infrastructural needs. With the unknown long-term impact of the pandemic and high unemployment, it is important that we get our fair share of federal funds. Only 10 more days – so complete your census today!

4. Run TEAL There’s a Cure 5K
Saturday, September 26

Our Inaugural 5K will benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (501c3). Ovarian cancer hits close to home for the Newk’s family. Lori Newcomb – Co-founder of Newk’s Cares and wife of Newk’s Eatery Co-founder and CEO, Chris Newcomb – was diagnosed with stage IIIC ovarian cancer in February 2013. Her story is all too familiar for many women, as one in 70 will develop this disease. It is the fifth leading cause of death in women. We at Newk’s Eatery look forward to your help in participating in a fun, positive event that benefits OCRA, the largest global organization dedicated to advancing ovarian cancer research while supporting women and their families. Learn more here!
