Downtown Dallas School Supply Drive
Organized by: Reach Dallas
The Downtown Dallas area has been known to be a very destitute & commonly ignored part of town and at the same time is known to be one of the most busiest areas in the United States. Allow me to elaborate. We walk past kids everyday in this area not knowing exactly what they are going through. Some have contemplated suicide, some are victims of domestic violence & child abuse, and some are members of low income families. Some of these kids grow up in a split household where either the mother or father have walked away & some have been neglected by both parents. Our mission is simple this year, we simply want to make a difference in the lives of these kids and their families. We want them to know that somebody out here cares about them and are thinking about their well being. A lot of us are blessed to go home to a beautiful family & having people there that care about us. We're blessed to have a wonderful job and drive a decent vehicle. We're blessed to have a hot meal every night and a fridge full of food. We're blessed to have a little extra spending money to go out and buy the newest gadget or a nice outfit and shoes. We're blessed to attend a great church and have friends to count on in time of need. Unfortunately, a lot of these kids never live to see this type of blessedness and assurance. Many of them grow up with little to no guidance and begin to experiment with sex & drugs, and are becoming apart of the most vicious gangs known to mankind. They end up in jail or in prison for committing crime, and some death. Our goal is to break this chain that the world has on our kids and show them a love they've never seen before. We are handing out school supplies this year in hopes of changing their lives completely around, ultimately winning them to Christ. The Gospel is our last hope to not only make a difference in these kids lives, but also affording us the opportunity to help get the streets clean and promoting success to see these kids walk across the stage. This school supply drive is only a gateway for something greater to come to this city. We need your help to make it happen. Help us as we serve here in Downtown Dallas on August 9th. Maybe you cant give money, but give prayer. You may also donate supplies if that is what is easiest for you. Take the time and help us to change lives today!
