For the sixth year, North Texans will come together Thursday to raise millions of dollars for local nonprofits.
The event is the North Texas Giving Day -- a day for charitable donors in North Texas to give to local nonprofit organizations they may not have been aware of before.
"In just five years, North Texas Giving Day has pumped more that $60 million into the North Texas community. In 2013, more than 75,000 gifts totaling $25.2 million, benefiting more than 1,350 nonprofits," according to the organization on their website.
This year, to commemorate the day of giving, Thanks-Giving Square in Dallas will hold events starting with an assortment of the city's top food trucks lined up in front of the Square for breakfast from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. They will reconvene for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Breakfast and lunch will include a variety of food options for enjoyment in one of the oldest parks in downtown Dallas.
The K3 Sisters, a talented group of pre-teens, will provide entertainment from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. playing the fiddle and singing original compositions, as well as Texas favorites. In addition, the noon ringing of the bells will be extended as an expression of TGS’ gratitude for North Texas Giving Day.
Donors can take part in North Texas Giving Day between 6 a.m. and midnight Thursday, Sept. 18.
Any monetary gift is welcome, but any gift over $25 qualifies for bonus funds. Get more information on how to donate here: https://www.northtexasgivingday.org/
