Drive-by Food Pickup

    The children we serve in the Ferguson Road East Dallas community are from refugee/migrant families. This is our third year to offer summer meals. In the years before, we offered music, art and ballet classes along with an ESL/reading program. This year is different because of Covid, so it is grab and go. The children love the fruit and chocolate and white milk! I also sent home painting projects along with paints and markers to make a special gift for Mom. On Thursdays we will be sending home snack packs and fruit for the weekend provided by the North Texas Food Bank. The wonderful thing is we continue community but in a new way of grab and go!
