RICHARDSON – Bus drivers with Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) are making special deliveries every Thursday for the next month to Richardson families impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. It’s part of DART’s community service campaign that helps bring fresh food to those who may not have a way to get to the grocery store.
The drivers will pickup food from the Network of Community Ministries and help the organization deliver it to area families. The Network has a list that includes 100 families who have not been able to receive assistance for one reason or another. The goal is to help families keep their pantries stocked with food.
“These families have three children or more, and often its been hard for them to get here with their children at home, to get to the grocery store to do all the shopping,” said Tina Floyd, development and marketing director for the Network of Community Ministries.
Since the coronavirus pandemic, the organization has been teaming up with several groups including the National Guard and local restaurants and hotels. The partnership with DART, allows the Network the ability to help even more people.
