FC Dallas and Toyota Partner to Deliver Meals to City House
For the fifth straight week, FC Dallas and Toyota continue to take care of those who are taking care of our communities. Today, MoneyGram provided boxed lunches prepared by Legends Hospitality to volunteers at City House in Plano. FC Dallas employees delivered meals to four households of teens and young adults as well as City House’s household volunteers. City House provides for, serves and empowers children and young adults who experience abuse, neglect or homelessness.
“Our clients all come from a place of trauma and it is so important that we meet their physical needs to make them feel safe and secure,” said Chey Reynolds, Director of Marketing & Development. “With the crisis we are all currently living in, meal provision has been a challenge to which our volunteers and community have responded so graciously. We simply couldn’t do it without the help of people and organizations like FC Dallas who want to help people in our community.”
