DALLAS--Just because it's the season of giving, that doesn't mean you'll always be the one on the receiving end. Well, how about turning things around by celebrating #GivingTuesday?

What started out as a social media hashtag has connected with the people at  the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas.   That organization teamed up with Texas Instruments to deliver 1,000 meals to the "hidden hungry."

"We have about 500 volunteers to deliver meals to the homebound citizens across North Texas," Terri Grosh with Texas Instruments said.

Texas currently has the seventh highest rate of hunger among senior citizens in the nation! So the ones who aren't able to make it to the grocery store or a local food bank were thankful for their special delivery.
