Angel Flight South Central, the Dallas chapter of a national organization providing humanitarian air travel, connects Dallas CASA volunteers with the children they serve all over the state. When a child is placed far away, Angel Flight will provide a pilot and airplane to fly the volunteer to that location. On any given day in Dallas County, more than 2,600 children are in foster care. Many of these children are placed outside of Dallas county, making it difficult for volunteers to reach them.

Comerica Prom Dress Drive
In 2015, Comerica Bank launched the bank’s inaugural Prom Dress Drive benefiting Dallas CASA. The event was such a success, with hundreds of dresses donated by the community, Comerica continued to sponsor the drive each year and included Boys and Girls Club of Dallas as a co-beneficiary.
During the month of February, select Comerica banking centers serve as drop-off locations for new or gently used and cleaned formal wear and accessories so that teen girls living in protective care and others served by the non-profits can experience the high school fun and tradition of prom.
Two special weekends in March, Dallas CASA’s training room is transformed into a prom dress shopping boutique. CASA teen girls are invited to shop from a what we hope will be a huge selection of dress colors and sizes. Gift bags of donated beauty products will also be provided.
Throughout February, items can be dropped off during business hours at the following Comerica Banking Centers:
Cole-Fitzhugh (3202 North Fitzhugh, Dallas)
Forest-Inwood (5200 Forest Ln., Dallas)
Lovers Lane-Devonshire (5647 W. Lovers Ln., Dallas)
NorthPark (8850 Boedeker St., Dallas)
Parker-Premier (3310 Premier Rd., Plano)
Preston Center (8225 Preston Rd., Dallas)
We are grateful to Comerica Bank and thrilled to have their sponsorship for this annual event.
