The Chris Howell Foundation to distribute coveted PPE care packages and food across
Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex from June to August 2020
DALLAS (June 10, 2020) — The Chris Howell Foundation (CHF) announces a series of COVID-19 Community Relief Drives in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Launching on Saturday, June 13th with events slated through August, food and essential PPE care packages will be distributed to thousands of families in need.
The PPE packages will include often difficult to secure masks, hand sanitizers and soaps.
Kicking off the first of the COVID-19 Community Relief Drives, The Chris Howell Foundation will partner with Cynthia Mickens Ministries, Inc. and their summer program, as the organization will provide food and information on its free summer learning and feed program. CHF will provide PPE care packages. This collaboration is expected to service 600 families and will be held in Hutchins, Saturday June 13 from 1:00 pm CT to 2:30pm CT.
With social-distancing in mind, this and each following event is structured as a drive-thru.
“Thought cities are beginning to reopen and we step into a new normal, it is the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community who need our support the most,” says Dominique Bryant-Howell, co-founder of Chris Howell Foundation. “So, we at the Chris Howell Foundation aim to provide our neighbors with the critical assistance they need during this difficult time. I would personally like to invite local companies and community organizers to partner with us to make these COVID-19 relief drives a success.”
