FWC Wish Lists - Donations
FWC Holds Parkland Donation Drives
FWC’s “Wish List Project” collects items for the patients at Parkland Memorial Hospital, the public and primary hospital for the neediest of Dallas County. You can help by purchasing items from the Wish List and bringing them to our meetings.
Lisa Little, Parkland’s Director of Volunteers and Guest Services, poignantly described patient needs at Parkland.
“Parkland Hospital cares for some of the poorest of the poor in our county. Daily, one can see many of life’s tragedies while walking the halls of Parkland. It seems unfathomable that in this wonderful country of ours, there are many people “out there” without necessities we take for granted.”
Together the FWC can make a huge difference in our community.

Since January 1st, we have collected new donations, in-cluding socks, underwear and other adult clothing, onesies for infants, toiletries, and more. Our thanks to Carol Eberhart, Mary Greene, Gerry Minna, Gloria Rege, Judy Solberg, Karen Westergaard, and Linda Willson. Our running totals for socks and underwear this FWC year are 248 and 199! In addition, you have donated a total of 171 other Parkland items, as well as 438 magazines for the Aston clinics. We will continue the socks and undies drive through the coming months and plan to focus on two other much-needed items in the fall. Thank you so much to all who have pitched in – and continue to!
For those who drop magazines off directly at Aston: your thoughtfulness is much appreciated. Please send us a quick email to let us know, so we can include your magazines in our total count -- and thank you!
