About Christmas in the Park at Fair Park
The Wright Family established the S.M. Wright Foundation in 1998. Our mission is to provide support and stability to underprivileged children and less fortunate families through hunger relief, economic empowerment, and assistance in the areas of education, health and social services. With inflation increasing rapidly and the income inequality gap widening, many families continue to need assistance to make ends meet.
The foundation offers two types of service. Community events include the Annual Back-to-School Event (1,000+ attendees annually), the Thanksgiving Day Feast (3,000+ attendees annually), and the Christmas in the Park Celebration (40,000+ attendees annually). Our community agency centers include the South Dallas Community Food Center, the Foundation Technology & Education Center, the South Dallas Clothing Center & Resource Center, the Beds for Kids Center of North Texas, the North Texas Furniture Bank, and the Foundation Business and Investment Club. The S.M. Wright Foundation has been delivering social services to those in need for over 23 years. Working together, we can continue to make our communities a better place to live and develop programs that address the educational and social needs of local families.
