S.M. Wright Foundation presents Christmas in the Park
Thousands of southern Dallas families will gather at the Fair Park Automobile Building for the 20th Annual Christmas in the Park, which helps meet great needs where thousands of families struggle every day to provide basic necessities. Over 44,000 people were served in 2017 with basic necessities like clothes, coats and food while others found toys, bikes and more to help make a child’s Christmas wish come true.
Organized by the S.M. Wright Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization providing support and stability to inner-city underprivileged children and less fortunate families in the South Dallas/Fair Park community, Christmas in the Park is perhaps Dallas’ largest holiday charity event, which has grown from serving less than 200 underprivileged kids in 1998 to over 44,000 residents in 2017.
The event is open to the public with advance registration happening on Saturday, December 8; Monday, December 10; and Tuesday, December 11 from 9:30 am-2 pm at People's Missionary Baptist Church, 3119 Pine Street, Dallas, Texas 75215, (214) 741-4990.
People need to bring these things to registration:
- Proof of ID
- Proof of residence
- Copies of birth certificates for each child registering
- Proof of income (families must meet the federal poverty requirements)
