Anniversary Open House to coincide with North Texas Giving Day
Mark youcalendars for September 19th! This day will mark the 10th anniversary of Mission Central as an independent non-profit.  To celebrate, we're inviting everyone to stop by between 7 am and 7 pm to tour the Village Pantry and Village Library. We hope to see you then!
September 19th is also North Texas Giving Day.  Donations greater than $25 made at www.donorbridgetx.org on that day make Mission Central eligible for bonus and prize funds.  Last year, Mission Central raised $8,000 on North Texas Giving Day.  This year, we're hoping to double that to $16,000.

Your groceries raise money for Mission  Central
Last year, Mission Central's supporters raised more than $1,200...by doing nothing out of the ordinary.  That's right, you can help raise money by doing something you do anyway - shop for groceries.

If you shop at Kroger, Tom Thumb, or Albertson's, you can support Mission Central each time you do your regular grocery shopping.  Each store runs their program a bit differently, so please visit our website to learn more.

Please note, if you have participated in Kroger's program previously, it has changed.  You will need to update your information in order for Mission Central to continue receiving credit.
Mission Central welcomes Village Library Program Specialist
On August 1, Mission Central welcomed Don Moore as our new Village Library Program Specialist.

Don will be working with both the after-school tutoring program and adult education programs on a part-time basis. Over the next few weeks, he will be working closely with the families already involved with the Village Library to assess their adult education needs.  Once these needs are identified, he will be working to establish classes to meet those needs.  These could range from basic adult education classes to ESL classes to additional GED preparation classes.

Don retired from the Federal Aviation Administration in 2011.  Since then, he has been pursuing a degree in math/physics with teaching certification from the University of North Texas.  He has been a tutor at the Village Library since 2011, and loves teaching, coaching, and mentoring others.
