The Dallas Morning News Charities-DestinyDestiny works at a local factory to support her three children and two grandchildren.

Her daughter works part-time at a gift shop. Together they have just enough to pay the bills. But it’s not always enough to buy the nutritional food their family needs.

Poverty robs people of dignity, hope and the power to determine their own future, but together we can make a difference. The Dallas Morning News Charities funds 25 local organizations that help those who are homeless, hungry and able to rehabilitate.
