Volunteers Needed for Charity Shopping Event

The 7th Annual “Around the Block” event aims to clothe over 1,000 children from the Dallas- Fort Worth area with brand new clothes. Organizer, Kids Matter International is in the process of raising over $100,000 to support the event.

This year’s “Around the Block” will be held Tuesday, Nov. 12 at the Kohl’s store in Southlake. Each child will receive $100 to spend at the store. Children will also receive a new pair of shoes from Buckner International, a backpack from Ryan Palmer Foundation, and book from the Barbara Bush Family Literacy Foundation.  With the help of Boston’s Gourmet Pizza, this annual event is an incredible way to experience the Holiday spirit. 

Organizers from Kids Matter International need approximately 400 volunteers to help the families shop. Click here to register to help.
