This time of year, we spend our days lovingly considering our children -- preparing for family gatherings, thoughtfully choosing gifts that will delight them, and thinking of ways to make the holidays magical for them. It is unfathomable to us that they would be hurt or neglected.
And yet, it happens. In our community.
Every 153 minutes, a child is abused in Dallas County. Think about that. It's staggering. And heartbreaking.
That is why we cherish our partnership with Community Partners of Dallas.
For 25 years, they have been ensuring safety, restoring dignity and inspiring hope for abused and neglected children served by Dallas County Child Protective Services. And we at Peacock Alley do all we can to aid them in that mission.
This week, they are filling more than 10,500 children's wishes with a Toy Drive.
To fill a wish, contact Corinne Karp at 214/624-7588 and deliver your wish to the Toy Drive Warehouse at 2050 Postal Way by this Friday, December 12th. Please help if you are able by granting a child a wish and giving them hope. This time of year especially, all children deserve to feel loved.
