Dance Hearts, a nonprofit created by North Coast DanceArts, Inc. dancers and their families, are inviting the community to join them in being a part of The Big Thank You 2015. The event is put on by the Bells of Freedom program and serves military families currently facing challenges this holiday season. The program provides an opportunity for supporters to adopt a military family that is in need of an emotional, spiritual, or financial helping hand.

The Big Thank You, which aims to show appreciation and support for men and women currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, will be delivering food and goods to Marine and Navy families at Camp Pendleton on Dec. 6. For those who are interested in helping out with the cause but are unable to adopt a family, donations of any amount will be accepted. For more information on Dance Hearts, Bells of Freedom, or how to donate visit or contact
