EVENTS THIS WEEK

National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week starts Sunday. This year's theme is Lead-Free Kids for a Healthy Future. Among the local events:

The group Frisco Unleaded will collect canned goods for the nonprofit Frisco Family Services Center. The goal is to collect 2,000 pounds of food to show how much lead was emitted from the Exide Technologies battery-recycling plant last year.

Donations will be accepted from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday in Simpson Plaza, in front of Frisco City Hall.

The city of Dallas, Keep Dallas Beautiful and the EPA will hold a Children's Health Fall Festival.

10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Nash-Davis Recreation Center, 3710 N. Hampton Road.

There will be entertainment, games and activities for children.

EPA officials will talk about lead-poisoning prevention and laws related to renovation in areas with lead paint.
