Stock Up Now

Stock Up for Summer Now Campaign

From Help to Hope
Together, we can serve our community.

During these unprecedented times, our families have been hit hard – job losses, food shortage, sickness, and the loss of educational opportunities.

Our families come to Wilkinson Center dispirited and in crisis mode, seeking assistance with food, rent, utilities, transportation, and more. Many come to us looking for hope. Our Food Pantry, the hub for our services, is located in southeast Dallas, an area that is a food desert. We continue to experience high demand at our Food Pantry. Seniors, who are most at risk, are homebound and unable to travel to the pantry for food. Adult education students, who are working hard to establish a brighter future for themselves are shut out of their classrooms.

We quickly adapted to the situation to remain open on the frontlines and continuing services to our families.

Food Pantry: We continue to feed our clients by offering home delivery to seniors and curbside pick-up for clients who are able to visit the pantry.
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.
Remote Solutions: Provides software, licenses, laptops, and equipment to students and teachers so they can continue their studies offsite.
Staff Salaries: Ensured all staff is paid. We have adopted an “all hands on deck” approach to meet the increased demand of our programs. Senior management, teachers and staff members are all pitching in to provide services for our clients.

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.

It can help provide for food deliveries to Seniors who are shut in. For our students and teachers, it can help provide licenses, software, laptops, and equipment so they can continue their education through virtual or distance learning. As well as ensuring our staff members are paid.
