Heritage Farmstead Museum to present yoga at the farm event on September 19

On Thursday, September 19, Heritage Farmstead Museum of Plano is offering a free yoga class and a variety of family-friendly activities from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. as part of the group’s participation in North Texas Giving Day, a one-day, online giving event that benefits thousands of North Texas area non-profits.

“We’d like the community to know that good neighbors embrace and encourage the art of giving to those in need. It’s a long standing tradition as the good people of Plano always pulled together to help fellow farmers in good times and in bad,” said Kathy Wilson, Development Director for Heritage Farmstead Museum. “And then there’s always the importance of getting our bodies moving and stretching our limits!”

Toni Farris, owner of Yoga Tree Studio in Plano, will offer a yoga lesson in the meadow at the Farmstead from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring their own yoga mats.

“We hope this event will elevate awareness of North Texas Giving Day across Collin County,” added Wilson. “As part of this event, Heritage Farmstead Museum will host a North Texas Giving Day Donation Station featuring information booths from a variety of area non-profits. Booths will be located across our 4 acre historic site.”

In addition to a yoga class, vendors and North Texas Giving Day donation station opportunities, guests will enjoy music and have the opportunity to take photos with the Farmstead’s chickens, sheep, donkey and pigs. A variety of food will also be available for purchase.

Some of the participating non-profits include: Agape Resource & Assistance Center, Prelude Clubhouse, Faith Lutheran School, Becky’s Hope Horse Rescue, Plano Community Homes, Habitat for Humanity of Collin County, Veterans Center of North Texas, Altruistic, Canine Companions, Abby Road Rescue, Daughters of the American Revolution, National Autism Association of North Texas, Fair Oaks of Denton, Paw Support, Developing Working Hands and the Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation.

Last year, North Texas Giving Day brought together more than 2,700 organizations and raised $48 million to area non-profits. This year, North Texas Giving Day aims to raise the giving day bar once again to benefit even more North Texas nonprofits.
