The Dallas Chapter has been working with the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB), Salvation Army (SA), and a new partnership with Minnie's Food Pantry (MFP) and we are happy to bring our chapter members these opportunities.
As you can imagine, North Texas children, families, and seniors are in need of our help. Not just during the holidays, but for those who are currently affected by COVID-19. Aside from the increase in families needing assistance, volunteer groups are canceling fundraising opportunities in support of social distancing and many companies are no longer supporting offsite activities during this time to protect the health of their staff. Donations are dwindling as stores don’t have a surplus to provide as they did before. It is my hope that you will support our new Virtual Food and Gift Donation Drive so that we can continue in our efforts to support North Texas communities.
Due to our chapter not having in-person activities, you will now be able to make monetary donations online or make food purchases from an Amazon Wish List and have the items delivered directly to the NTFB or MFP.
North Texas Food Bank
The Dallas Chapter will be targeting these donations to be given to a needy family for Thanksgiving.
- Choose/check the gift option.
- Select the NTFB as the address for items to be delivered.
- Indicate Dallas Chapter ACFE in the “Gift Message” section and your name in the “From” section.
- Drop off food donations Monday-Friday 8:30 AM-4:30 PM. Mention that you are donating on behalf of the Dallas Chapter, Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.
This year, we will be collecting funds to help needy families for Christmas. Please make your monetary donation by December 15, 2020.
Minnie’s Food Pantry
Minnie’s Food Pantry is a local organization that has been in existence for over twelve years and is located in Plano, Texas. They have provided over 11 million healthy meals and educational resources as well as received several awards for charity. In an effort to provide for those in need, MFP has partnered with Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Mark Cuban, Emmitt Smith, Kevin Bacon, and Martha Stewart.
The Dallas Chapter will be targeting and collecting items for those families affected by COVID-19. This will be an on-going fundraiser throughout 2020-2021.
