Food Drive for Refugee Families arriving in Dallas

Fair & Square Imports, located in downtown McKinney, will be collecting food items through Monday, January 28 for refugee families arriving in Dallas.

This week refugee families from Afghanistan, Congo and Myanmar are coming to the DFW area to establish their new homes. However, due to the government shutdown, food assistance for these families cannot be processed and distributed. Fair & Square Imports is organizing a food drive to help bridge this gap.

The food will be distributed by Being Deliberate, a local organization that provides support to refugees and asylees. Below is a list of items to purchase and drop off at Fair & Square Imports, which is also available HERE.
