Thanksgiving is a very special time at Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex®. By connecting the giving hearts of the people of Arlington to those in need during Thanksgiving, Mission Arlington® seeks to make a lasting impact in the community.
On Thanksgiving morning, November 23rd, beginning at 8:00 a.m. the Mission Arlington® family will deliver turkeys, hams, food baskets, and cooked meals to the homes of more than 6,000 families. Last year, 26,095 people received a Thanksgiving meal. Turkeys and Thanksgiving food are needed.
Sign up to receive food starts late October and early November. This event is always so much fun. For more information, and/or for ways you can be involved, click this LINK!

Thank you so much for your support!
Each major event we do, like the ones listed above, generally take a year in advance to get ready. For example, we receive school supplies, Christmas toys, and Thanksgiving food all year long, setting it aside until “the day” arrives.
As you may know, it isn’t at all unusual to have groups sorting and moving Christmas toys in the summer months, because that’s just what it takes to get ready. We work all year long on each holiday event.
Your prayers make a difference, and we appreciate not just the way you give your time when you volunteer, but also the opportunity to work alongside of you day by day. You make it easy to care for people. Thank you. To God be the glory!
