City staff collects toys, clothing, toiletries for those in need

For the past several years, in the spirit of the holidays, City employees have assisted the Genesis Women’s Shelter by sponsoring a clothing and toy drive.    Genesis provides shelter, safety, counseling, and expert services to battered women and their children.

During last month’s holiday luncheon, City staff also raised money and collected toiletries and clothing for the residents of Modern Senior Living, a 90-bed nursing home in South Dallas.  The photo above shows some of the products that were dropped off.  With the money that was collected staff members were able to purchase and distribute a fleece blanket, a pair of slipper socks and a toothbrush and toothpaste to each of the facility’s residents.
