Thankful for “Giving Tuesday”
We are thankful for your wonderful support on Giving Tuesday, May 5th. Once again, you gave generously and sacrificially to make a difference here. The gifts we received Tuesday were as strong as they ever have been on this day. We want you to know that these funds will support the needs of so many who are struggling with financial hardships during this season. We are able to provide, because you made it possible. Thank you.
What was Giving Tuesday?
During this unprecedented time, many nonprofits have increased needs for support, in order to care for people in need affected by the personal and economic impact of COVID-19. Mission Arlington® / Mission Metroplex® is no different. We were already seeing larger numbers and greater need in the lives of people who walked through our front doors every day.
Because of this, the Communities Foundation of Texas (and many sponsors) made huge efforts to support local nonprofits with the “North Texas Giving Tuesday Now,” on Tuesday, May 5th. So many of you gave to make a difference here. We were overwhelmed by the community support of people in need through this offering. Thank you so much.
