Trees are available after the final North Pole Express® ride of the season, sponsored by Trinity Metro TEXRail and Great Wolf Lodge.

The Grand Prairie Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is offering FREE gloves and masks to 30 essential businesses in Grand Prairie (they will consider businesses in neighboring communities on a case-by-case basis).
An “essential business” is a business that stocks items and provides services that most humans need for survival, such as food, public safety via first responders, health care services, veterinarians, energy and electricity, petroleum and propane, waste and wastewater, transportation, communication services and more.
