Past Volunteer Events

Our partner organization, Faith Walkers Charities is a faith based charity that ‘Feeds & Supports’ the needy in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Faith Walkers Charities wants to impact the world by helping those who are in need both physically and spiritually. Their mission is to provide for those who are in need and lead them to stability. We helped distribute hot meals and vital hygiene kits to the homeless popultaions in both Dallas and Greater Fort Worth in August 2016.
