What Gives: Small ways to help neighborhood nonprofits

This month, make a donation to Homeward Bound Inc., the nonprofit substance abuse and mental health treatment center in Oak Cliff, or party it up during Art Conspiracy 6, which benefits a nonprofit that uses art to teach kids about non-violence.

THIS MONTH, MAKE A DONATION …

… to Homeward Bound Inc. The nonprofit substance abuse and mental health treatment center in Oak Cliff serves more than 6,000 people a year. All of the center’s clients have substance abuse problems, and almost all of them require public assistance and scholarships to get help. Almost half of them are homeless, and most have mental health disorders. The center’s clients always need clothing, shoes and toiletries. The center also needs cleaning supplies, paper towels, toilet paper, bath towels, washcloths and bed linens. The center also takes credit card donations through its website, homewardboundinc.org.

OR PARTY IT UP …

… during Art Conspiracy 6, at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23 in a warehouse at 511 W. Commerce. The event this year benefits Today Marks the Beginning, a nonprofit that uses art to teach children about non-violence. The event will feature performances from Ishi, Seryn and Dem Southernfolkz, plus work from 150 local artists. Tickets are $10, and opening bids for artwork are $20. More information is available at artconspiracy.org.
