Dallas' Project Clothes Orphans


May 1, 1954

PUSAN, Korea, Apr. 30 (503rd EngGp) - "Operation Dallas," a project to provide clothing for an AFAK-sponsored orphanage here, got underway yesterday with the arrival of the first bundle of clothing for the youngsters from that Texas city.

The drive, sponsored by Hq., (?), 503rd Eng. Gp, was originated by Cpl. Phil McHaney, Texas City, Tex.  It will supply clothing for the children in the Mo-Ui Mae Sil Orphanage.

Cpl. McHaney, a former Texas high school all-star football player, wrote Bill Rives, sports editor of the Dallas Morning News, of the need for clothing among the 200 children at the Institution.  Rives printed the letter and individuals and charitable organizations in Dallas promised cooperation.
