WHY: The recent winter storm has ravaged the Dallas community and has especially hit hard in poor, Black and Brown communities. In light of the recent outages, plumbing issues, and scarcity of food and water, Friendship-West has organized to combat these issues by providing grocery items, hot food for those without power, and water. The church also recognizes there are many without adequate plumbing, heat, etc. because of the storm and is looking to provide support in those areas as well.

“We know our community is hurting and we are here to lend a helping hand,” said Dr. Frederick D. Haynes, III, senior pastor of Friendship-West. “We are looking to service as many as 2,000 people over this two-day distribution period and as many as we have resources to assist beyond. The church understands that there is a growing need for support, and we are trying our best to support the surrounding community.”
