Marcus Hiles – and Western Rim Generously Offer Winter Clothing to Low-Income School Children of Texas

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Charity–The upsurge of economic development in Dallas, in large part led by its
booming real estate industry and a plethora of business activities,
often overshadows the need of less advantaged population groups
struggling financially. Marcus
, a prominent developer of affordable luxury housing throughout
Texas, is well aware of the more than 1,200 homeless children living on
the streets of inner city Dallas, and fights relentlessly to assist
these youth plagued by poverty. Most recently, in an effort to protect
school children from the approaching winter elements, Hiles donated over
300 coats that will be distributed to those most in need by a church in
the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

In the Dallas Independent School District (DISD), 86 percent of students
qualify for free and reduced-price meal plans, and the state considers
66 percent of the district’s students to be at risk for dropping out,
according to the New
York Times
. A City Hall Council Meeting report concluded that 38
percent of children in the downtown area were either homeless or lived
in a family that earns a gross income beneath the poverty line, although
more than 27,000 of the individuals in these families work full-time
jobs. Marcus
urges local businesses and residents to avidly support
not-for-profit organizations and charity initiatives as they help
at-risk youth overcome hardships.
