For many years our Home Office, Distribution Center and Dallas-area stores have supported Community Partners of Dallas (CPD) through many different events, including their annual Easter Basket drive. CPD is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring safety and restoring dignity and hope to over 20,000 abused and neglected children by providing resources and support to the caseworkers of Dallas County Child Protective Services. Through their annual Easter Basket drive, they provide thousands of children with excitement and joy when they discover their very own basket on Easter morning filled with toys, coloring books, games and more.
This year we collected 375 fun and festive Easter Baskets!! Each store, department and team really took the time to make this event special in their own way. Individual employees took their own children shopping to provide them the opportunity to buy something special for someone else. Our Visual Merchandising Team made this a fun team activity and made beautiful “visually” appealing baskets. Our Distribution Center employees took a multistep approach by first holding bake sales to raise money, then purchasing loads of Easter Basket goodies and ended by making baskets themselves.
No matter how they approached it, our employees helped make Easter a fun holiday to remember for local children in need.
