Denison Service League's 'fiesta to fight hunger' gives back to kids

By  | 

DENISON, Tex. (KXII) - The Denison Service League hosted "fiesta to fight hunger" Saturday, with the largest graduating class of provisional members they've had in a decade.

Members brought non-perishable food and donations to the fiesta which will go straight to the local kids' pantry.

The league has been serving the area since 1955.

Last month they raised $75,000 for 22 local charities.

Organizers said the event made giving back a lot of fun.

"It's wonderful," said the Denison Service League president Linda St. Claire. "There's so many children needing this. We do everything we can to help. We can't solve all the problems, but we do our part hopefully to make a big difference."

If you want to help out, the Bargain Box on Main Street in Denison is the service league's main source of revenue, and they said they're always looking for volunteers.
