The Family Place, Back To School

As everyone should know by now, we are very quick to throw Our Friend’s name out there.  But I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t tell it just like it is.

The Family Place “CARES”, and they have a very good record for getting the most done, and that is 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

SO, ALL of Our Friends out there who are in the Dallas/Ft Worth area, PLEASE, let’s help Our Friends help the Children get ready for school.

The children of The Family Place need your help to start the 2015-16 school year.  Please keep in mind the families who do not have the resources to shop for the supplies on their school supply list. The Family Place provides backpacks filled with DISD suggested supplies and uniforms to children throughout our shelter, transitional housing and outreach programs.  Your contributions will help us equip these kids with the supplies they need for the upcoming school year.

Due Date: Friday, August 7, 2015
