New facility open for business
Mission Central's new facility at 740 East Pipeline Road has been open for business for just over a month. With more than twice the square footage of our previous space, the new facility is allowing us to provide more respectful, compassionate service to our guests.

Our larger lobby means that everyone now has a chair to sit in while they wait for their grocery orders. It also means that we have a comfortable area where guests can learn about important community resources including job openings, housing assistance, or medical help.

We also have a private area where guests are interviewed by our intake volunteers. This means that guests can share information about their families without others overhearing what is said. This allows us to be more thorough in connecting guests with resources in the community.

Other benefits include more room in the food pantry for storage and sorting, a place for a new cooler which will allow us to obtain more fresh produce and dairy, and a meeting room that will allow us to host community organizations and educational programs.

Mark your calendar for December 18th! We'll be hosting our official ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11:30 that morning.  Please join us as we celebrate the completion of this new space.
Getting ready for Thanksgiving? Support Mission Central as you shop.
grocery-shopper-blur.jpgIf you'll be shopping for your Thanksgiving feast at Albertson's, Tom Thumb, or Kroger, you have the opportunity to support Mission Central by scanning your rewards card at checkout.

All three grocery stores have programs that allow shoppers to link their rewards cards to a charity of your choice.  Then, each time you shop, a percentage of the sales will be donated to that charity.  To learn how to link your rewards cards to Mission Central, visit our website.  If you're a Kroger shopper, please remember that you must re-link your card each year.  If you have not done so this fall, please get online to choose Mission Central as your charity.

We appreciate everyone who is already using their cards to support Mission Central.  Each time you shop for groceries, you are helping to empower your neighbors in need.
Allen Wholesale Truck Sale benefits Mission Central
A big thank you to Allen Wholesale Foods for their recent donation to Mission Central.

The company regularly holds "Truck Sales" in different cities around the Metroplex, and after each sale, they donate a portion of the proceeds to a local food pantry in that city. Mission Central benefited from their recent sale in Hurst.

It is through the generosity of individuals, organizations, and companies like Ron Allen that Mission Central is able to provide groceries to more than 450 families each month at our Village Pantry. 
Village Library students hit the courts for fall semester
Last spring, 40+ students from the Village Library were introduced to tennis through Northeast Tarrant Tennis Association's (NETT) Aces in ACTION tennis program. 

This fall, NETT continued their connection to the Village Library, hosting 7 weeks of tennis learning sessions at the Hurst Tennis Center. The fall program concluded with a party for students, parents, and siblings on October 28th. Students received trick-or-treat bags and a racket/ball to help them practice over the winter break.

Aces in ACTION (which stands for Academics and Children's Tennis in our Neighborhoods) is NETT's first National Junior Tennis League chapter. The NJTL network was founded in 1969 from a vision of tennis legend Arthur Ashe as a means to instill in kids the values of humanitarianism, leadership, and academic success.
