This month, attend an event …

… running your heart out for the love of the lake. The same-named nonprofit is one of the recipients of this year’s White Rock N’ Roll 5-mile and 2-mile races, sponsored by the Dallas Running Club. Proceeds will help fund For The Love of the Lake’s ongoing efforts to maintain and improve White Rock Lake. Register for $20 online at dallasrunningclub.com or $25 on race morning, and take home a sleek technical T-shirt.

Or shop for a cause …

… at World of Goods, 10675 E. Northwest Highway. This furniture, clothing and appliance-stocked resale store funds the Catholic Charities of Dallas, which serves 57,000 poverty-stricken people every year. If you want to help, all you have to do is shop. Even better, if you are looking to get rid of gently-used furniture or clothing, collectibles, or household items, donate them to the store. 214.342.8231.
