I love a chance to pay it forward! When I can, I try to support and involve my family in these great ventures.
There is a 5K Run/Family Fun Walk on November 9th, called Harvest Hustle, at Fair Park. Benefitting Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance, this year’s event will bring awareness to the growing percentage of families who are now homeless. More families than ever have become homeless because of foreclosures and job losses in recent years. Dallas schools had more than 2,500 homeless students last school year. Thousands of children across North Texas are living in shelters, cars, motels and other temporary places.
Slappy and Monday and Lone Star Circus will be there to entertain. Face painting and more. A circus extravaganza!
