“DFACS is in constant need of items to make a child feel more ‘normal’ during their transition as often time they are removed with just the clothes on their backs,” organizers state. “New clothes, new shoes and a stuffed animals can go a long way for a little one adjusting. Donations needed for DFACS kids at this time are kid type toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, combs, and brushes. Longhorn's staff will supply book bags filled with school supplies.”
The event is sponsored by the Downtown Development Authority.
