What Gives: Small ways to help neighborhood nonprofits

Buy some cool stuff …
… at the annual REACH silent auction event benefitting Hope’s Door, a shelter and counseling center that offers services designed to help break the cycle of domestic abuse. Sweet 200, the salon at 738 Davis, will host the event at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 7.

Satisfy your sweet tooth …
… at Dairy Queen’s fifth annual Miracle Treat Day. When you purchase a Blizzard, $1 will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network, a nonprofit that raises funds for children’s hospitals. Miracle Treat Day is Thursday, Aug. 5, and there are more than 100 Blizzard flavors. But the Oreo blizzard will be the featured “Blizzard of the Day” as it has been the most popular flavor since it was first served in 1985. In Oak Cliff, Dairy Queen is at 2127 Fort Worth Ave. For more information, visit miracletreatday.com or dairyqueen.com.
