This weekend marks the third annual Mayor’s Day of Concern For The Hungry. We’ve over 95,000 Denton County residents that don’t know where their next meal will come from and 10% of those are seniors and 18% of those are children. Mayor Mark Buurroughs and Serve Denton have partnered to raise awareness and stock our food providing organizations who feed our hungry. So if you want to pitch in and make a food donation, bring it by Jupiter House, Seven Mile, Kroger (University, 288 and Teasley), The Cupboard, First State Bank, Access bank or one of the other several location across the city (find the list here).
Aside from that, there's a whole slew of other stuff going on this week. We've accumulated (as we're prone to do) in handy-dandy list form nbelow. It's the Den10.
