At The Container Store’s Home Office and Distribution Center this holiday season, employees were given the chance to grant 125 special wishes for abused and neglected children in Dallas County through our 20-year partnership with Community Partners of Dallas (CPD)– a nonprofit organization that provides resources and support to the caseworkers of Dallas County Child Protective Services.
During the holiday season, caseworkers from Dallas County Child Protective Services gather wishes from the children under their care – from bicycles and dolls to Legos and trucks. They then invite individuals and companies to fulfill all these special wishes! This year, CPD’s President & CEO, and Vice President of Development joined us at our Office and Distribution center to distribute hot cocoa as a gesture thanking our employees for their help with the toy drive.
Not only did our employees collect and donate 125 wishes, they also volunteered to help sort and organize the gifts in Community Partners of Dallas’ warehouse. Several of our employees also distributed the toys to the caseworkers, making it easier for them to provide toys to children that might not otherwise receive anything during the holidays.
