On Thursday, December 17, the Texans Can Academies - Dallas North campus distributed 20 hams and 40 winter coats to their high school students in need. The items were given to students who otherwise might not have a holiday meal to enjoy with their family and are in need of a new coat to stay warm this winter.
The schools also purchased toys to give to their students with young children in order for them to be able to have something wrapped under the tree for their kids.
Texans Can Academies - Dallas North’s staff purchased the hams, coats and toys and then hosted a drive-through distribution outside in front of the campus, located at 9704 Skillman St., Dallas, TX 75243, to distribute the items to students and their families who have notified the school that they are in need.
