Items needed fall into three categories.


  • Dishes (sets of four or six)

  • Pots and pans

  • Potholders

  • Silverware

  • Spatulas


  • Bath towels

  • New pillows

  • Blankets

  • Bed sheets

Winter clothing

  • Coats

  • Warm clothing for men and teens

  • Shoes for men and women

  • New underwear, bras and socks

Donations can be dropped off at various businesses across the northern DFW area from now until Dec. 31. See the map above for locations and site-specific deals.

The group will meet at Network's headquarters in Richardson on Dec. 11 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. to organize and sort donations. Volunteers will receive a free meal from Kuai Asian Kitchen. Those wishing to participate can find more information at
