The Lantana Ladies League ended another successful season of fellowship, giving, and volunteering. The non-profit organization has supported many charities in the community by giving over $35,000 in donations or by members volunteering their time.

In addition, the league donated new car seats for young mothers supported by Denton Young Lives.
When an organization is in need, members stepped up in various ways. Members provided food on several occasions for events for Denton Young Lives. Members donated supplies for backpacks to serve the Communities in Schools organization. Through Socks for Seniors, many senior citizens received comfy socks in the winter to keep their feet warm
Members also donated food to organizations committed to feed needy school children while they were away from school. For almost every event, members brought food for Kids Kupboard. They also provided food for Loves Pacs organization for children in Denton.
Members of the league enjoy giving back to the community by volunteering their time. Perhaps you saw some of our members volunteering at one of the following events: Denton Young Lives, Lantana Earth Day, Lantana July 4th Celebration, Lantana 5K Run, and the Sadie Keller Foundation’s Breakfast with Santa.
The Lantana Ladies League is always looking for new members to join in fun social events and in supporting the community. The 2019-2020 season kicks off in August, so look for the August issue of The Cross Timbers Gazette for details on our August Kick-Off event.
