There are lots of stories that I don't want to think about.
You might find that funny since I work for an agency that serves abused and neglected children, but it's true. So many children living through nightmares -- right here in our own community. You may be shocked, but there are confirmed reports of abuse and neglect in every residential zip code in Dallas County -- and more than 20,000 reports of abuse will be received annually in Dallas County alone.
But no matter how horrific the horror, the degradation, the injuries, the children are just that -- children. Most of them just want to be loved and cared for and treated like every other kid. That's why our Toy Drive is so vitally important.
We have some wishes left over here at Community Partners of Dallas and it would really be great if they could be filled right now by you. We'd love it if you would call us at 214-624-7557 or come by our office at 1215 Skiles Street (near Baylor Hospital in the Meadows Foundation's Wilson Historic District -- gotta keep showing the love to The Meadows Foundation!) and pick up a wish or two and make dreams come true for these kiddos.
Thanks -- the kids need you now. Me too.
