This week, the New Dallas Based Dream Center will partner with local online retailer Shoebacca to bring $25,000 worth of new shoes for over 500 children during the Dream Center’s Back to School Event for South Dallas residents in need.
“From day one, our company’s sole mission has always been to help our local communities, and it remains our number one priority. We were so pleased to hear about the new Dallas Dream Center chapter and jumped at the opportunity to help their cause, especially during Back to School when these families need help the most. We are thrilled to be able to assist others during these challenging times and are grateful to have such a wonderful organization in our hometown.” – Ryan Schlachter, President, Shoebacca.com
Los Angeles-born Dream Center is an organization that helps underprivileged communities with everyday resources such as food, clothing, hotline services, crisis services, pregnancy management and more. The Dallas chapter recently purchased the Old Gospel Lighthouse in South Dallas and is currently raising funds for its 10-million-dollar renovation to be able to offer permanent resources for the area and its residents. The center is slated to open its doors in early 2023.
In partnership with the R Foundation, Amerigroup and other Dallas sponsors, the Dream Center’s Back to School Event will take place on August 6 at 10 a.m. in the parking lot of the soon-to-be-built community center. The event will give families the opportunity to attend and enjoy carnival games, food trucks and more while also stocking up on supplies such as backpacks, food, school supplies and shoes from their newest donor, Shoebacca.com.
“Shoebacca has been an incredible partner of Dream Center Dallas and the communities we serve. Families are struggling to make ends meet every single day while carrying the burden of getting their children ready for a new school year and lacking the resources to do so. Supplying 500 pairs of brand-new shoes for children will give them a boost of confidence and hope – we believe that when people have hope they can do ANYTHING. We are so grateful for this generous gift to our community!” – Kacie Kintz, Dream Center Dallas Director
