PartnerSource Compassion: Help Us Make a Difference

PartnerSource is participating in the Let’s Roll Toilet Paper Challenge, an initiative to help Metrocrest Services supply toilet paper for those in need. Please help us reach our goal of 500 rolls!

We all now have first-hand knowledge of what a precious commodity toilet paper can be. But for many (particularly seniors), on a regular basis, it’s a choice between purchasing toilet paper, or food, or paying an electricity bill. No one should have to make this choice!

You can help! Please visit the PartnerSource fundraiser to make a monetary donation. (For reference, a 12-pack of toilet paper costs approximately $13.)

Please donate by August 20. PartnerSource will deliver toilet paper to Metrocrest Services in advance of National Toilet Paper Day, and additional toilet paper will be purchased with monetary donations. We appreciate your support.

Metrocrest Services is celebrating its 50th year of helping our neighbors in Carrollton, Addison, Farmers Branch, Coppell and parts of Dallas with food, rent and utility assistance, financial assistance, job training, GED classes, senior services and much more. PartnerSource is pleased to support this incredible local non-profit organization.
