DISD Gets Big Pledge From Mavericks

DISD Gets Big Pledge From Mavericks

By Allana J. Barefield

School is in session for some districts but the supply closets, while full with notebooks and pencils, might be in need of hand sanitizer and masks. Dallas ISD is getting help in the form of a $1 million pledge from the Dallas Mavs to cover personal protective equipment such as reusable masks, face shields, sanitizer pumps, personal hand, antibacterial wipes, and sanitizer units. 

The donation will be used to help approximately 155,000 students and 12,000 teachers. The Mavs continue their practice of corporate support by helping future leaders in need. In April they donated $10,000 to families who needed help with food necessities and in 2018, they donated fitness trackers to all 80,000 elementary school students to promote healthier living.
