Greater Texas CU Hosts School Supply Drive for Mission Arlington

supply drive

Greater Texas Credit Union Arlington branch staff hosted a school supply drive from July 17 through Aug. 4 to support Mission Arlington. Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex helped more than 9,000 students with school supplies in 2016.

Greater Texas has supported Mission Arlington for more than 10 years with projects such as equipment and furniture donations, monetary donations, Easter-egg drive, food drives, and Christmas toy drives; and for the last five years, Greater Texas has supported the school supply drive.

Greater Texas Credit Union Regional Branch Manager Reagan Martin said, “We support Mission Arlington because they are an amazing organization that truly helps the less fortunate in Arlington. They utilize hundreds of volunteers and offer a multitude of services to assist people with their physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual needs.”

Mission Arlington began in August of 1986 and was created to build bridges, not barriers. According to their website, “Our heart is to be here whenever it is possible to meet a need. We want each person and every family to receive authentic help when they need it most. We want to treat people with the same passion with which we would want someone else to respond to our own moment of need, or the needs of those we love most.”

As of 2016, Mission Arlington's administrative costs were 2.95 percent, which translates to a little more than 97 cents of each dollar going directly to people in need. To find out more, visit missionarlington.org.
