LAUNCH: What Gives?

THIS MONTH, VOLUNTEER …
… at the North Texas Food Bank. They need volunteers to help sort incoming food donations weekdays at the South Dallas warehouse. The volunteer shifts are from 9 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. If you like to cook, you also can help in the community kitchen, which prepares 10,000 meals daily. Volunteer hours for the kitchen are Tuesday and Thursday from 8 a.m.-1:30 p.m. For information, contact the volunteer coordinator by e-mail at volunteer@ntfb.org, or call the food bank at 214.330.1396.

OR BUY SOME GROCERIES …
… using your Tom Thumb Reward Card. If you link your grocery store card to La Reunion TX, the arts organization receives a check totaling as much as 1 percent of your grocery bills. The money will help La Reunion TX build an artist-in-residency program facility on a 35-acre site in Oak Cliff. For information about how to connect your Tom Thumb Reward Card to La Reunion TX, go to lareuniontx.org/DonateContact.aspx.
