Here at TDEC, Inc., the youth and the community always come first. The philosophy of generosity that Terry and Jody live by touches every aspect of the community's lives, especially where the youth are concerned.
Terry and Jody use their backyard to host many events that have been donated to help fund local organizations. In addition to this, they also co-host the AISD / ACC Administrative Professional Tea every year.
Another way they give back is by purchasing animals at the county fair, having them processed and donating the meat to the Alvin Food Pantry. Both parties benefit.
