VISTA Nate Dears Assists Our Daily Bread with a Major Fundraiser

FullSizeRenderOur Daily Bread is a community soup kitchen that serves a free, nutritious lunch meal Monday through Friday to the hungry and homeless in Denton County, TX. In addition, the organization started serving Monday dinner meals and Saturday lunches. On Saturday, February 27, Our Daily Bread had it most important fundraising event of the year. The 3rd Annual A Heart for the Hungry event was held at the University of North Texas Gateway Center and featured a dinner, dance and a silent auction. It was a lovely event that was successful due to the teamwork of staff, board members, and volunteers.  AmeriCorps VISTA, Nate Dears, helped managed the data, solicit donations, advertise the event on the agency’s website, and assisted with creating the program for the event.  Our Daily Bread raised approximately $60,000, and will use the funds to continue helping those need in with the meals we provide and special services we offer.
