Community Partners of Dallas serves children from birth to age 18. Thanks again for helping make a child’s holiday wish come true!
There are several ways you can help:
- Serve as a sponsor for the Toy Drive. This is a wonderful way for your business to gain exposure in conjunction with one of Dallas' largest holiday toy drives. Various levels of sponsorships are available. For more information, please contact Joanna Clarke at (214) 624-7584.
- Fill wish cards by matching specific gift requests made by a child. This is a great project for a business office, church group, scout troops, professional organizations and individuals. Just call us at (214) 624-7588 or e-mail Corinne Karp to request your wishes.
- Organize a new toy drive to donate gifts to the Last Stop Holiday Shop. Many children will come into care after the deadline to turn in wishes, but these children are not forgotten. They will receive gifts from the Last Stop Holiday Shop. We need toys suitable for ages infant to 18 years. Please see the list below for ideas for toys by age range.
- Our holiday elves will be happy to do the shopping! Make a monetary donation to Community Partners of Dallas by choosing "Toy Drive" in donation type drop down menu. Checks can be mailed to Community Partners of Dallas, 1215 Skiles Street Dallas, TX, 75204, or call (214) 624-7557 to pay with a credit card. No gift is too small when it comes to making a child's wish come true! These funds will be used to purchase gifts to match cards and to buy gifts for the Last Stop Holiday Shop.
- This is a great opportunity for individuals, families and organizations to get involved. Weekday volunteer opportunities available. Contact Annie at (214) 624-7585. Volunteers high-school age and older only.
