Operation Care International, Which Helps Homeless, Now In Need of a Helping Hand

The nonprofit is losing vital donated warehouse space

Operation Care International is known for hosting more than 10,000 homeless and people in need during their huge Christmas party events held at the Dallas Convention Center.

But the organization also supplies other shelters year-round from their 10,000-square-foot warehouse space that's been donated to them for the past 15 years.

It's where they store about 400 pallets of essential items that go to those in need.

But now this donated space is coming to an end.

"He has some challenges in his life because of this COVID and health challenges so he could not do it anymore," Operation Care International founder and President Susie Jennings explained.

Jennings explains the impact of losing the warehouse space.

“It's so important because if we lose the warehouse we could not give away to our partners, 41 shelters and ministries, and that impacts thousands of people in Dallas Fort Worth," Jennings said.

She's worked out an agreement to be able to rent the space until the end of September. This gives her some time to find another option.

"We really need a 10,000 square feet warehouse to store our 400 pallets of goods,” Jennings said. “If anyone could help us financially so we could pay for our moving and the warehouse if we have to rent the warehouse we need funding."

Helping others has been her mission that she vows to continue. But for now, she's the one needing help.

“So I beg you please help our homeless in Dallas,” Jennings said. “If we do not find this warehouse we are going to lose these products and that will be a lot of thousands of lives that could not be helped especially during this pandemic."
