DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - The Dallas Theater Center’s 2013 production of “A Christmas Carol” raised $57,993.81 for The North Texas Food Bank. After each performance of the play, cast members invited patrons to make contributions to NTFB. On average, patrons donated $1,896.80 per performance. Each dollar provided three meals for North Texans in need.

“Dallas Theater Center is committed to partnering with community organizations to provide our audience with meaningful experiences that inspire conversations,” said DTC Artistic Director Kevin Moriarty in a statement. “Partnering with the North Texas Food Bank every year increases awareness about hunger in North Texas and encourages our audience members to give to the organization, both now and in the future. We could not be more impressed by the generosity expressed by our patrons every year during “A Christmas Carol.”

Benefactors donated more than money. They also volunteered their time and gave food. Patrons donated a total of 934 pounds of food during the run of “A Christmas Carol,” which translates to 747 meals. That’s almost double the amount of food collected during last year’s run at the Kalita Humphreys Theater.

During its six-year partnership with the organization, DTC patrons have raised $297,912.16.

MORE:
The North Texas Food Bank is a top-ranked nonprofit relief organization which leads the fight against hunger with knowledge-based strategies to distribute donated, purchased, and prepared foods through a network of feeding programs in 13 North Texas counties.
