Merry Christmas Holidays! Hope everyone is avoiding the stomach bug! 2016 has been one heck-of-a year and we find that when the things of life get you down, the best way out of the funk is to get out there and volunteer and give back to the community. To be thankful for whatcha got should be a year-round thing. In this week's edition of the Den10, you're getting two-for-one. In addition to our weekly list of the "can't miss" events happening in Denton, we also have a list of different ways you can give back to your community this holiday season by volunteering. Check it all out below!
Comments and tips on beating the plague can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you know someone in need or want to find ways in which you can volunteer, this was posted by our District 2 Counselor, Keely Briggs:

Agua Dulce Feeds The People | Agua Dulce
From Chestnut Tree’s page: The Chestnut Tree has partnered with Agua Dulce (Sweetwater) for the past several years feeding people on Christmas Day. We are continuing the tradition again this year. Last year, meals were provided to 300 people and would have not been possible without the donations and volunteers in our community. In order to help support this effort, we will be donating 10% of this week's sales to the cause. If you don't have time to stop in, but would like to give support, jars are located around downtown. JT Clothiers, Wine2, Garden Gate, The Candy Store, Serendipity and Eastside are just a few places with jars. Go stop by and spread some Christmas cheer.
