Every year, CitySquare provides neighbors in need with Thanksgiving dinners. On Saturday November 20th,thanks to the generosity of Highland Park United Methodist Church, DART, Kroger and Select Commercial Services, CitySquare distributed 1,200 turkeys and side dishes (far more than ever before) primarily to neighbors from the South Dallas/ Fair Park area. Sides were provided by 1st Unitarian Church, St. Marks School, and YMSL (Young Men Service Leadership) .
Cars began lining up early for blocks and at 9 a,m. CitySquare volunteers and staff began distributing the turkeys and sides in the annual drive-thru event. Volunteers from the Dallas Stars Foundation and mothers and daughters from the National Charity League worked throughout the morning to see that the lines moved smoothly and that every family was assisted.
CitySquare leadership says that with the rising cost of food and more folks struggling to make ends meet, they are grateful to be able to provide so many families with a Happy Thanksgiving.thanks to generous donors and volunteers,
