Since she was 10 years old, she has volunteered with Darla Shirley’s Youth World, a South Dallas organization that feeds at-risk children, helps them with their homework, stuffs their backpacks with school supplies and makes sure they have Christmas gifts.
What was needed were more meals at Thanksgiving for the children and their families.
So last year when Rose, now 16, became frustrated with the pomp and circumstance and the expense of the annual Homecoming Game festivities, she decided a better use of the money was to buy turkey and fixings for Thanksgiving dinners across South Dallas.

Going on an Egg Hunt
Taking the kiddos on an Easter egg hunt is always a joy. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden features members-only egg hunts. Surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of tulips and spring blooms, participants are divided into age-appropriate groups, so everyone has a fair shake at egg-gathering. (We hear tickets are going fast, so reserve your spots today.)
You know the Easter season is officially upon us when you see Dallas pooches flaunting their Sunday best! The annual Easter in Lee Park and Pooch Parade is a must-attend event. In addition to the pup parade, participants enjoy music, food and vendors.
Some of your favorite neighborhoods sponsor egg hunts — and you need only show up with enthusiasm and an egg-collecting basket. One of our favorites is the University Park Eggstravaganza, which takes place this weekend in Goar Park. Additional activities at this annual event include photos with the Easter Bunny, face painting, bounce houses, snacks and music.
