For years now, the Mission Arlington® family has been honored to partner with the “Arlington Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration committee as they lead and support community efforts celebrating the life & legacy of Dr. King. This wonderful group of people, led by Ms. Toni Kincaid, have made a significant difference in the life of so many across our community
In 2009, Tillie Burgin, our Executive Director, was honored to receive the “Sharing the Dream” award for community service. For the past couple of years, we have been honored to host this team on the “Day of Service,” providing a central location from which volunteers could fan out across our community to help others in need. It has been wonderful to watch and to join the efforts of so many.
This past Tuesday night, the MLK Jr. Celebration committee came to the monthly meeting of our board and honored the Mission family with a beautiful plaque which now sits in Tillie’s office. The plaque honors Mission Arlington® for our
“partnership with the Arlington MLK ‘Day of Service,’ serving and meeting the needs of others.”
We are grateful for the privilege we have had of walking together through the years. We look forward to many more years of partnership in the future.
