Founder Elizabeth Watkins has felt a calling to serve from an early age. She has spent the last 12 years volunteering at her children’s schools, with strong experience as a PTA board member at four Frisco ISD campuses and a board member of the Frisco ISD Council of PTAs. For the past five years, she has volunteered weekly at a local food pantry.
Touched by the need she saw in our community through her volunteer work, Liz set a goal to serve others by starting a nonprofit. She earned a Nonprofit Management Certificate, met with Frisco ISD administration, and researched the needs of our Frisco community. In May 2019, Refresh Frisco was born. We are so excited about the opportunity to help ensure that every child in our community has access to personal hygiene items. We hope that you will be inspired to join us as we give the gift of good hygiene to children in need in our community.
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ ”
