DMC Cares: Hurricane Relief Program

While many regions are suffering from the ongoing and devastating effects of the hurricanes, many of you have asked what DMC is doing and how you can help.

DMC Cares is a comprehensive assistance effort for our customer community with a goal of $1 million in support for storm victims via financial and product donations.

DMC Cares has two stages: immediate action and long-term assistance. Both need your support.

Immediate Action

  1. A collection station for essential items to support storm victims will be located in the World Trade Center atrium where the following new and unused items will be gathered:

    • New underwear and socks (all sizes)
    • Toiletries
    • Baby diapers, wipes, and formula, and bottles
    • Towels and wash cloths
    • Pillows, pillow cases, and blankets

    *For bulk donation information, email dmccares@dallasmarketcenter.com

  2. To support market attendees from the affected areas, including reps and retailers, DMC is offering special travel assistance packages for those able to attend. For more information, please reach out to dmccares@dallasmarketcenter.com.

  3. We are launching a large-scale clothing drive to gather apparel of all types and sizes. We will collect new and unused men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing and then distribute the clothing to designated organization partners that will reach local and regional individuals impacted by the hurricane. A collection station will be located in the World Trade Center atrium. Bulk items must be shipped.

    Items can be shipped to:
    Dallas Market Center
    2050 N. Stemmons Freeway
    Dallas, TX 75207
    Attn: Scott McGill (Hold for DMC Cares Program)

  4. Finally, we encourage customers to join us in supporting the American Red Cross via their website, www.redcross.org, by calling 1-800-RED CROSS, or by texting the word HARVEY to 90999 for a $10 donation.

Long-Term Assistance

  1. To support recovery and rebuilding efforts, we will begin accepting home décor and lighting products from our exhibitors immediately. We will store these donations, and then we will work with local and regional agencies in the coming months to distribute these much-needed products from our exhibitors.

    Items can be shipped to:
    Dallas Market Center
    2050 N. Stemmons Freeway
    Dallas, TX 75207
    Attn: Scott McGill (Hold for DMC Cares Program)

  2. In the coming weeks we will initiate Operation ReStore, a program to help affected retailers and reps in the region. These customers will be eligible for a special travel package to help them attend trade events at Dallas Market Center. There are more than 300,000 retailers in Texas, and it’s our duty to help restore as many as we can. For more information about this program, please contact dmccares@dallasmarketcenter.com.
