Through Little Hands Big Hearts, we wish to inspire you to take to heart the plight of needy children in our very own DFW community. Beginning November 30th, 2015 - the day designated by a United Nations Declaration to raise awareness for children's well-being around the world - Radha Krishna Temple will be collecting essential items for the approximately 64000 children who experience homelessness with nothing more than the clothes on their back. A small act of kindness from each of us, coming together in support of these disadvantaged children in the DFW area, can make a world of difference in helping these little hands grab hold of a better future.
Collection of essential items will run through January 15, 2020 benefitting grass roots agencies such as:
Hope Supply which supports over 75 area organizations in serving homeless children throughout 5 counties of the DFW area.
The Samaritan Inn, a homeless shelter providing shelter to families and individuals. Out of 160 people housed on any given night, 1 out of 3 are children!
Allen Community Outreach provides free human services to help families avoid hunger and homelessness.
