Project Warm Us Warm Clothing Drive and Operation Once in a Lifetime Toys for Troops Toy & Clothing Drive at Frisco Square

In FOL's Spotlight, Things To Do by admin


Frisco, TEXAS (October 16, 2017) –  Frisco Square is proud to partner again with Project Warm Us and Operation Once in a Lifetime for the upcoming holiday season.
Project Warm Us collects warm items such as coats, blankets and shoes to help keep the homeless warm during the cold winter months. Many of the people they serve are shelter-less, living in Dallas, Texas and the surrounding metroplex. They also collect for people living in shelters and orphanages. Statistics from the Dallas area homeless count shows there are 21% more homeless people than last year, and an expected increase with Hurricane Harvey victims. Their 2017 goal is 9,636 warm items by Thanksgiving. Learn more about Project Warm Us at
