As Mayor of Dallas, I am passionate about ensuring a quality education for our city’s children. That is why I am asking for your help preparing students and their families for the upcoming school year.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has challenged families across our city, and many children will soon begin classes again either virtually or in person.
That is why I am thrilled to report the Dallas Mayor’s 24th Annual Back to School Fair will be held on Friday, August 21 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.! This annual tradition has helped thousands of students start the school year with the supplies and essentials required by the Dallas Independent School District.
As with many events in the last few months, this year’s Back to School Fair will look much different. We will conduct a drive-thru event for parents and students to receive their school supply packs. Families will still need to meet certain income requirements and all guests will be required to pre-register.
It is my hope that you will become a sponsor by providing a cash donation, which can cover the costs of school supplies. Time is short, so your willingness to step up is extremely valuable and important.
Alison McIntosh and her team are handling the sponsorships and can be reached at 214-520-2194 or MayorsFair@McIntoshCompany.com.
We have a tremendous amount of need in our city as COVID-19 continues to spread in the community. I understand that everyone’s resources are strained, and you are likely receiving numerous requests for philanthropic assistance. But I would be incredibly grateful to you for helping our children during these tumultuous times. Dallas will get through these challenges by working together and helping out those in need.
Thank you so much for your interest in participating in this year’s Mayor’s Back to School Fair! In addition to a monetary sponsorship, we are looking for in-kind contributions such as discount codes, vouchers, coupons, and free services to provide students and their families. We welcome your consideration to help in any capacity!
Thank you for consideration.
