Serena Morris opened her business, the Givin’ Tree, June 2018.

The Givin’ Tree is a clothing closet for high school aged kids that are in need of formal wear for proms. Serena also operates a Wedding Fair once a year. This fair is put on for people in need of wedding gowns. The Givin’ Tree is a for-profit business. Serena hopes to use the profits, at a future date, to fund a scholarship called “Princess for a Night.”

Client Assistance:

Serena used the assistance of the New Braunfels Small Business Development Center and the Center’s Business Advisor, Sam Morgan. Together, they worked on entity formation tasks including the unincorporated forms for Comal County to get her DBA and the IRS online application for her EIN. They continue working together on her business plan.

While working with UTSA Small Business Development Center Serena was able to start her business and form one full time job.

We are proud to be a part of the Givin’ Tree’s success!
