County commissioner donates $15,000 to neighborhood groups

County Commissioner Elba Garcia donated $15,800 to 25 local nonprofits this week. When Garcia took office, she pledged to donate a portion of her salary to neighborhood groups, and this was almost 12.5 percent of her pay from the county, which is $126,454.

Garcia gave to the Friends of Oak Cliff Parks, Casa Trevino and the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League, as well as Dallas Police Department Explorers Program, Dallas Animal Advocates, Cathedral of Hope Food Pantry and other charities.
