Join Us for NCJW Day of Service January 19th

This annual event on Martin Luther King’s birthday gives our members and their families and friends the opportunity to make a difference in the Dallas community. We’re pleased to join National NCJW’s new anti-sex trafficking initiative, Exodus. You will be helping young girls and women through two of our recipient agencies, the High Risk Task Force and the Letot Center. Unfortunately, there is a growing need for help as these young people move from the street to a safe place.

We are asking you to volunteer on Jan. 19th. We are also asking you to help with collection of useful items and/or “sponsor a bag” and we will purchase these items in bulk.
