We're excited for our building partners, St. Vincent de Paul charitable pharmacy, and the potential expansion of their services to all of Texas! They do fantastic work and we're looking forward to more Texans being able to access their services. πŸ’ŠπŸ‘¨πŸ½β€βš•οΈπŸŽ‰

In less than three years, St. Vincent de Paul's pharmacy has dispensed more than 32,000 prescriptions to North Texans.

We love Liz Vice's new recording of her song, Refugee King. It reminds us that the story of Jesus is not distant from our friends in Vickery Meadow.

Refugee King (re-recording)

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
I cried the first, second, and third and four... you get the picture. I love the first recording but this one just hit harder as if the piano and the strings and the glockenspiel (which is a weird word to spell) and @imcharlesjones’ voice were a lullaby for my soul. ✨✨✨
Thank you @tylerchester for asking me what I wanted on this song and painting a beautiful scene. Thank you @jeremystanley for finding a sixth wind after cutting together a feature film sized Christmas Eve service. Thank you @imcharlesjones for being that still calm voice.

And many thanks to all who participated and made this video what it is.
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Happy Christmastide everyone.

The final tally is in! We had another mini #VickeryChristmasMarket this past Friday and in total we served 290 families with over 880 gifts. Each family also received a gift card from the Make It Matter Foundation. Additionally, over 300 volunteers came to help for all the different events. Thanks for all who helped make the event such a success! πŸŽ„πŸŽπŸŽ€

It’s been a tough year for mail delays. But in Dallas, those letters to Santa don’t have to go too far. A Lake Highlands couple is continuing their tradition of accepting mail addressed to the North Pole and making sure those letters get a response. They told NBC 5’s Allie Spillyards, it’s a good deed they believe is more important than ever this year.

#VickeryChristmasMarket was a terrific success yesterday! We were able to provide 714 gifts to 233 families and each family also received a gift card that was provided by a generous donor. πŸŽ„πŸŽπŸŽ€

We wouldn't have been able to do all of this without the 180 volunteers that came yesterday, the 150+ that helped the days and weeks before to prepare, and the hundreds more who purchased gifts.

We're so grateful for the families and volunteers who came. Merry Christmas.

Vickery Meadows Apartment sublease - charming one-bedroom apartment for a single or couple Right in the middle of Vickery Midtown, half a mile from Half Price Books, Whole Foods, and an Alamo Drafthouse that just opened up. It's also about 15 minutes from downtown Dallas. Apartment has an outside patio and is fully furnished except the bedroom(including patio furniture). However, if you'd prefer to bring your own furniture we could easily store ours. Rent is $550/month, electricity is $90ish, water is $25-30, Internet is $60. Apartment is on the third floor. Ideally we would love to rent to someone we already know, but a friend of a friend is fine too. πŸ™‚ We need someone to move in mid-February, and the lease ends at the end of November. If you have any interest or questions please email me at [email protected]
I love the atmosphere at Northwest Community Center and I am excited to help with World Refugee Day.
