Empowering people in need to improve their own quality of life

Last year, 41 students participated in Mission Central's GED classes.  Eighteen of those students took the GED exam, with 16 passing.  (That's an 89% passing rate!)

National Volunteer Appreciation Week

April 26-28
Southlake's Art in the Square event.  A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit Mission Central.

We need a cargo truck to pick up donations from grocery stores and individual donors.
We need a volunteer to tutor children from 4 pm - 5 pm on Tuesdays.  We also need substitutes for the tutoring program.

We also need volunteers to assist with picking up donations from Kroger on  Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
A paper cutter would be a great addition to our office supply closet.  We have one, but it's starting to lose its "slice."

Boy Scout Food Drive A Success for Mission Central
PantryLast month, local Boy Scouts picked up non-perishable food items from our neighbors in the Mid-Cities area.  The Scouts picked up 1,090 pounds of food which they donated to Mission Central's Village Food Pantry.  That's a half-ton of food!

Food drives are a great way for groups to support Mission Central.  Donated goods go directly to needy families and help defray the costs of buying food in order to keep our pantry shelves stocked.  If you are interested in hosting a food drive in your business or organization, please contact us

Time for Spring Cleaning! 
It's that time of year - time to clean your closets and get ready for spring. As you bring out your spring attire, please remember the Coat of Many Colors.  The store would love your gently used clothing, as well as household items like books, tableware, working electronics and seasonal decorations.

All profits from the Coat of Many Colors are used to support Mission Central's programs, including the Village Library, Village Food Pantry, Family Opportunities Program, and GED classes.  In addition, guests of Mission Central may be given gift cards to the store when they are in need of clothing because of a family emergency or work requirements.
