DALLAS – After thieves stole copper and equipment from a non-profit that typically provides meals for hundreds of Dallas ISD students, the community is coming together to keep kids fed at summer camps.
At the same time, there is still a race to get the copper needed to restore service at Hunger Busters.
Natalia Villa and Gracie Phillips are among dozens of kids enjoying summer camp this year at the Trinity River Audubon Center.
Sharon Mansfield runs the summer camp with the nonprofit literary program, Writer’s Garret.
“We were knee deep in camp preps, lesson plans materials, was watching the news,” she said.
