Get ready, Dallas! Random Acts will be at the Salute to Supernatural convention, September 20-22. And we don’t go anywhere without adding a little kindness on our travels.
Our charity partner in Dallas is the Vickery Meadow Food Pantry and Clothes Closet, which is a project of the Vickery Meadow Neighborhood Alliance. We are so proud to partner with this group – and the Alliance is made up of several other groups who saw a need and responded, including:
Ladies of Charity
Catholic Charities of Dallas
Jewish Family Service
National Council of Jewish Women, Greater Dallas
Temple Emanu-El of Dallas
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul
Park Cities Baptist Church
If you are heading to the convention, please consider making a contribution.
What should you bring? Our contact at the Vickery Meadow Food Pantry and Clothes Closet, Cheryl, gave us some suggestions:
“We can really use peanut butter, any canned protein, such as tuna or chicken, rice, pasta, and dried beans.
“And the Clothes Closet desperately needs NEW kids underwear and socks of all sizes, but especially for school age children, as well as NEW underwear and socks for adults. We will accept any other gently used clothing; men’s clothing is always in short supply. Kids collared shirts in white and red, and kaki pants and skirts are good because the kids need them for school uniforms. Shoes are always welcome.
“We do not sell any of these items. We give them, free of any charge, to clients of the food pantry with demonstrated need.”
