Dallas Dads Group Teams up with Plum Organics for Giving Tuesday
Giving Tuesday is a global day of outreach on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. The premise is to start the holiday season in a meaningful way by inspiring people to collaborate with non-profit organizations and give back in their local communities. For the second year in a row, Plum Organics partnered with Dallas Dads Group to target child hunger in North Texas. Plum Organics generously donated an entire pallet of baby food to Hope Supply Co. Members of Dallas Dads Group volunteered to sort and package the food so it could be distributed across the DFW metroplex and end up with children who need it.
Dallas Dads Group was honored to be one of the 12 City Dads Group chapters to partner with Plum Organics for this Giving Tuesday initiative. City Dads Groups across the country from New York City to Los Angeles volunteered their time with local organizations to help unpack Plum Organics donations and sort food, clothing, and whatever else was needed. Take a look at this short video that shows City Dads Group members nationwide in action on Giving Tuesday.
Locally, our group worked with Hope Supply Co. to unpack and stock the pallet of Plum Organics baby food pouches. Hope Supply Co’s mission is to provide critical items including food, diapers, clothing, and school supplies to homeless children across North Texas. They work with a large network of partner organizations to help deliver supplies to families in need. Plum’s large donation of food allowed them to replenish their depleted shelves before the holidays. Baby food is not one of the items that Hope Supply Co. purchases with their limited funds. Instead, they are entirely reliant on donations. This donation helped to ensure they have baby food to supply to children in need.
Our group helped unpack and get the pouches ready to be delivered. With just the Plum Organics donation we were able to fully stock their shelves, which were full with only about a quarter of the donation. We are incredibly thankful that we were able to help out the local and not quite so local (this donation will be distributed across 5 counties in North Texas) children in Texas. Before we even left for the day, some of the food was already on it’s way to families in need.
