Dream Center Dallas is helping to make Christmas extra merry this year for Dallas families in need of assistance over the holidays. On Saturday, December 17, at 12pm, Dream Center Dallas is hosting an event to distribute free gifts, until supplies last, to families that may not otherwise be able to provide their children with a present on Christmas. The event will be held in the parking lot of the new Dream Center Dallas building that is currently being renovated at 1900 S. Ewing Ave, Dallas, TX 75216.
Santa will also be in attendance for photos, hot chocolate will be served and other special holiday activities will be available for children to enjoy while their parents have a little time alone to shop for a Christmas present.
“Christmas is a magical time of the year and we strive to help all families feel the joy of the season in the midst of hard times in their lives,” says Kacie Kintz, Dream Center Dallas Director. “We hope our Christmas event provides a little relief to parents and brings smiles to their children’s faces.”
Community members can help by volunteering to work the event, donating funds, or purchasing items off of Dream Center Dallas’ Amazon Wishlist to be distributed at the event.

The Dream Center first began in Los Angeles in 1994, serving as a resource center focused on providing support to those affected by homelessness, hunger, and lack of education through residential and community outreach programs. In 2020, Pastors Dustin and Jamie Bates established Dream Center Dallas, after partnering with LA Dream Center, in order to provide resources and services in the areas of education, homelessness, hunger, poverty, addiction, abuse, and human trafficking within Dallas.
Dream Center Dallas is currently converting The Gospel Lighthouse Church, originally built in 1948, to be the hub of ministry and provide multiple outreach opportunities. Merriman Anderson Architects is the architect for the renovation.
