The State Fair of Texas is proud to announce a new partnership with Comerica Bank, which will bring nonprofit organization Trusted World’s work to the South Dallas community. Trusted World provides clothing, food, and other necessities to vetted nonprofits and local schools. Focusing on supporting the whole family unit rather than solely a student, this partnership between the State Fair of Texas and Comerica Bank is designed to expand the support of Trusted World to families and nonprofits in the South Dallas community. Although Trusted World has worked with more than 530 North Texas organizations, this partnership is the first time their work will be brought to South Dallas.
“We are excited to continue our work with great nonprofits in the South Dallas community,” said Vice President of Community Affairs and Strategic Alliances for the State Fair of Texas, Dr. Froswa’ Booker-Drew. “Trusted World has an amazing warehouse in Garland providing needed items to agencies throughout the metroplex. We are excited to fund this route for the South Dallas/Fair Park community.”
Michael Garrett, CEO and Founder of Trusted World, said “It is a joy to be working with an organization like the State Fair of Texas that provides so much time and commitment in giving back to the community that they work in. It is an honor to work alongside very passionate people.”
“At Comerica, we strive to raise expectations of what a bank can be by making impactful and innovative investments in the communities where we live and serve,” said Brian Foley, Texas Market President. “This strategic partnership with the State Fair of Texas and Trusted World will bring critical resources and services to South Dallas and Fair Park, reaffirming our bank’s commitment to economic and community development in this area.”
The program will roll out in early 2022 and is expected to begin with a yearlong commitment. This partnership joins the number of other initiatives funded by the State Fair of Texas. For more information on Fair-supported organizations, please visit BigTex.com/grants.
