This event is designed to encourage caring individuals throughout North Texas to give back to the community by supporting their favorite charitable organization(s). All gifts of $25 or more made through NorthTexasGivingDay.org between 6:00 a.m. and 12:00 midnight on September 18, 2014, will be paired with more than $1.5 million in bonus funds and prizes, making your gift go even further.
At the Sundance Square kick-off event on September 18th, Meals On Wheels employees and volunteers will be dressed as chefs and will pass out brochures and granola bars to help raise awareness of senior hunger in Tarrant County. Last year, Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County received over $40,000 in donations and matching funds, providing almost 7,800 meals for homebound elderly and disabled residents of Tarrant County. Our goal is to beat last year’s record and provide even more services for this frail segment of our population.
