BY NAQUANNA COMEAUX
As CityWalk nears its opening, we’re so thankful that donations and requests for volunteer work have started to come in. It’s important that our low-income and formerly homeless residents have food and toiletries available to them upon move-in. We want them to be able to transition into their new home as smoothly and as comfortably as possible, lacking nothing.
A month ago today, I blogged about the CityWalk Home Package needed for our 142 studios that can be purchased in honor of your family, church, business or organization (http://citywalktalk.blogspot.com/2009/11/creating-lasting-legacy.html). Several churches have already made commitments to purchase a CityWalk Home Package for one or more of our studios, but we still need to hear from more of you in the community.
Can you purchase a CityWalk Home Package and/or host a donation drive for food or toiletries? This is a wonderful opportunity for your sorority or fraternity, bible study group or youth group, or little league team to come together and “give back” during the holiday season.
Whatever you can do, whether it’s all at once or a little at a time, please know that it is greatly needed and much appreciated. To make a donation, go to citywalkatakard.com and click on “DONATE” or contact me at the Central Dallas CDC office at 214.573.2570.
We look forward to hearing from you!
