Sisters Unknown

Every day we are reminded here at CPD of why the work we do is so important.  Just a few days ago, 2 lovely ladies were here to get some funds for a couple of twin bedroom sets at Target.  The older daughter had been living with her maternal grandmother (her mother abandoned the girl some time ago) and the courts had determined recently (through a paternity test) that she had a wonderful and appropriate father living right here in Dallas.  The girl’s father was thrilled to find his 7 year old daughter that he didn’t even know about and she is now moving in with him, his new wife, and a 3 year old half-sister.  For less than $100, we were able to help the two sisters to bond with darling matching sheet, pillow, and comforter sets.  What a way to make a family happy and make two little girls into sisters and friends.

We are just beginning our Back-To-School Drive (we will send about 2,000 kids to school with backpacks filled with supplies and uniforms in August), so please send any donations our way.  We are looking for donations of school supplies and cash (to buy uniforms and supplies – we can buy in bulk).
Thank you for always keeping Community Partners of Dallas in your thoughts and prayers.  I feel like I spend most of my time here on my knees -- either in thanksgiving or in desperation!

My #FundraisingFriday gift is going to the Dallas Museum of Art this week.  Beauty enriches our lives.  We all need more beauty.
