During these unprecedented times, our families have been hit hard – job losses, food shortage, sickness, and the loss of educational opportunities.
We quickly adapted to the situation to remain open on the frontlines and continuing services to our families.
Supplies: The purchase of supplies (bags, boxes, tapes, gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, etc.) to implement the new food provisioning process and ensure safety.
Living Expenses: Provides financial assistance for basic living expenses to include transportation passes, childcare, rent, utilities, and more.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Now more than ever your giving matters and can make a tremendous difference in the lives of so many. Please join us in our plan to help Dallas’ most vulnerable residents stay afloat during and after the crisis.
Food Donations and Volunteering
Host a Food Drive
We are always in need of supporters to conduct a food drive to help stock our Food Pantry, especially during the summer months. This activity is great for families, schools, churches, corporations, scout troops, and organizations large and small. A list of needs is available on request.
