3rd Annual Dallas Citywide Luggage Drive
Impossible Possibilities (IP) awarded a $1,000 grant in support of the 3rd Annual Dallas Citywide Luggage Drive held on Friday, June 26, 2015, at Dallas City Hall.
The grant marks the third consecutive year that the organization has contributed to the drive, which benefits graduating high school seniors in the Dallas ISD. Each recipient will use the luggage as they transition from high school to college.
The annual event was organized by 2011 IP scholarship award recipient and 2015 Georgetown University graduate Adan Gonzalez, who realized the need after his own experience of using trash bags when he moved from Dallas Oak Cliff to Washington D.C.
IP Executive Director Joshua Hernandez addressed the students at the event and shared with them the importance of following their dreams and never giving up. The IP grant purchased 20, four-piece sets of luggage, which contributed to the overall goal of 120 total sets.
