About Us

The Wright Family established the S.M. Wright Foundation in 1998. Its 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. It is unique among social services because it carries out its mission on a daily basis in our community providing hope, encouragement, and assistance to families in need. With the inflation increasing at a fast rate and the income inequality gap is getting much wider many less fortunate families continues to need assistance to make ends meet.

The foundation offers two types of services. Community events include the Annual Back-to-School Event (2,500+ annually), the Thanksgiving Day Feast (3,000+ attendees annually), and the Christmas in the Park program (40,000+ attendees annually). Our community program centers include the South Dallas Community Food Center, the South Dallas Education Center, South Dallas Clothing Center, Beds for Kids Center of North Texas, Foundation Furniture Bank and the Entrepreneur Mentoring and Financial Management Center. The S.M. Wright Foundation has been delivering social services to those in need for over 19 years. Working together, we can continue to make our communities a better place to live and can continue to develop programs that address the educational and social needs of our community.
