WeWork is launching a philanthropic event series in North Texas with its “Give Back, Give Big” campaign.

“WeWork’s mission is to help people make a life, not just a living,” said Nathan Lenahan, head of operations for WeWork’s southern region, in a release. “And one way we do this is by connecting people’s work to the rest of their life and community.

The coworking company has engaged in other philanthropic missions including the fight against breast cancer and hurricane relief. Through “Give Back, Give Big” it will host a series of three events focused on various causes. 

“WeWork’s mission is to help people make a life, not just a living.”

First up will be the SPCA of Texas. The Nov. 2 event will include a fashion show featuring Dallas fashion bloggers wearing designs from The Impeccable Pig. After the show, attendees can sit down for a manicure while enjoying some treats and drinks from local eateries. 

Dogs also will be up for adoption during the event and donations will be taken as well. SPCA of Texas will receive 100 percent of the proceeds raised during the event.

“The North Texas community has shown an outpouring of support since we opened our doors,” Lenahan said. We’re excited to give back and provide an interactive way for Dallasites to join us as we support the organizations that are working each and every day to make positive changes in our city.”
