Please join Wilkinson Center for “Throwback Thursday Food Drive” on Thursday, June 18, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., at its Food Pantry, located at 3402 N. Buckner Boulevard, Suite 302 in East Dallas.
The community is invited to donate all non-perishable food items, especially kid’s foods, such as cereal, peanut butter, jelly, crackers, Spaghettio’s, macaroni and cheese, etc. Donation drop-offs will be contact-free with volunteers and staff unloading directly from cars parked in designated spots.
The Wilkinson Center Food Pantry is experiencing an unprecedented demand due to the current health crisis. In the first two weeks of May, the pantry served an additional 24% to 47% of households, children, individuals and seniors.
“We are asking the Dallas community to donate these much-needed items on Thursday, June 18,” remarked Anne Reeder, executive director, Wilkinson Center. “Summer is always a time of need for the clients we serve, but our families face even greater challenges this year during the COVID-19 health crisis. We need the community’s support to ensure we collect these essential items for our clients.”
