Help A Child For The Holidays
If you still have the post-election blues, join us in committing ourselves to doing good for those in need in our community! Stop by our office at 4209 Parry Ave. to pick up a Salvation Army Angel.

The angels have all a child's information. You buy a present and bring it back to the DCDP office. All the presents go to the Salvation Army to be distributed to the families.

The children we are donating to are requesting presents like winter coats, shoes, and pants. Regardless of the outcome of the election, we are going to continue to fight for those who are most vulnerable in our community.

Start The Year With Democrats
The 2016 Election was bittersweet for all of us here in Dallas. While we lost the White House, we swept the County and even picked up a State House seat. There's so much to celebrate, and we invite you all to join us in swearing-in our Elected Officials on January 1 at 12:30 PM. We'll be gathering at the Hyatt Regency - 300 Reunion Blvd., Dallas 75207.
Tickets cost $50. Purchase here:
Thanks to the friends (so far) who helped make this possible:
Judge John Creuzot

If you're interested in sponsoring this event, send your pledge/check to DCDP by December 22. You can also pay online here (indicate in memo that your donation is for the Swearing-In Ceremony):
