April 6, 2020
Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins and the Communities Foundation of Texas announced the creation of a fund to aid workers at the frontlines of fighting coronavirus on Thursday morning.
“The fight against the spread of coronavirus can only be won if we protect our frontline responders including police, fire, EMS and health care workers,” Jenkins said.
The “Dallas County Coronavirus Response Fund” is meant to help these frontline workers with any immediate needs they may have.
The trustees for this fund are Lynn McBee, CEO of Young Women’s Prep Network, Dr. Michael Horne, CEO and President of the Parkland Foundation, Debbie Branson, Lawyer at The Law Offices of Frank Branson, and Miguel Solis, a Dallas ISD Trustee.
The community leaders that serve as the trustees of the fund have already secured $100,000 so far in donations that will support the production of sanitizer. The page for donations can be found here.
