Donating, volunteering, and helping others in need can be such a rewarding experience. This year, North Texas Giving Day is September 17. It’s an annual event designated to give back to the local nonprofit organizations in the community. It’s kind of a big deal. In 2019, donations exceeded $50,000,000!
