Fair Park Seva on COVID Vaccination effort:
Over 35 CMDFW members and their friends volunteered at the Dallas Fair Park Mega Vaccination Site on April 3, 2021 to help with Covid Vaccination efforts in North Texas. They were a part of an estimated 16,000 shots given that day and proudly served alongside the US Army, the US National Guard, the US Coast Guard, FEMA, and the Dallas Police and Fire Department to support the health of our community. We sincerely thank the volunteers for their SEVA!
