UPDATE: In just a few hours the children not only raised $2,000 in money and gift cards for evacuees temporarily (or permanently) relocated in Fort Worth and Dallas, but also received two suburbans full of unused clothing, socks and underwear, diapers, wipes, baby bottles, formula, toys, pet treats and pet toys. We traded the donations for homemade bread and muffins, breakfast tacos, lemonade and fresh hot coffee. The community came together for this one. A special thanks to everyone who supported these children's efforts to help other children. Be looking for a Part II soon as more people come to DFW from the Texas Coast with more needs!
I can’t imagine what life after Hurricane Harvey is going to be like for the evacuees. Our neighborhood children want to make sure the children evacuating Houston and surrounding towns have something that comforts them during a time that must be so confusing. - Jocelyn
Who: Sixteen children who live on Chatburn Court in Fort Worth’s Berkeley Place neighborhood (just off Forest Park and blocks from TCU) will open a breakfast and lemonade stand to collect goods for the children and pets displaced during Hurricane Harvey.
When: 8:30 – 11 a.m. Saturday
Where: Chatburn Court, Fort Worth, Texas 76110
Why: To collect donations such as toys, children’s books, gift cards, diapers, baby formula, baby wipes, clothing, pet toys, pet treats and pet food.
How: The children will band together to collect the above items by setting up a food cart selling goods made in each of the families’ homes — the Coles, the Ridenours, the Tatums, the Cowans, the Micheros and the Boggesses. They will sell homemade muffins, bread, breakfast tacos, cookies, brownies, fresh-squeezed lemonade, fresh coffee from Starbucks and more.
