    Kids receive backpacks filled with supplies from Amazon.

    Gift-giving season arrived early for six schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

    Amazon donated $15,000 worth of backpacks filled with school supplies along with $24,000 to support science, technology and engineering education at four elementary schools in the Fort Worth Independent School District and two schools in the Dallas Independent School District during a two-day donation tour through each school.

    Amazon says the donations are part of the company's efforts to give back to local communities where its employees live and work.

    The Fort Worth schools receiving the donations were: John T. White Elementary School, Carroll Peak Elementary School, Clifford Davis Elementary School and Glencrest 6th Grade Center.

    Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    The Dallas schools were: Martin Luther King Jr. Learning Center and T.W. Browne Middle School.
