Collection of School Supplies Begins for MW Family Resource Fair, Aug 2
Will you or your church or organization help us help up to 500 families?
Although school classes still have another week to go, we are beginning our two-month quest to gather thousands of required school supplies for low-income parents that will be distributed at our annual Family Resource Fair on N. 15th/Colcord. Parents can purchase $25 of supplies for only $5 when they attend the 40 minute resource meeting at Jubilee Theatre. Local donors and volunteers are are the backbone of our ability to help parents subsidize the growing cost of supplies and yet be involved. If you would like to donate or volunteer, please contact Joyce Brammer <firstname.lastname@example.org> or call the main office, 254.753.4900.

Mission Waco one of 7% of all non-profits in the nation
Charity Navigator <www.charitynavigator.org>, the leading charity evaluator in America, just recognized Mission Waco’s fourth “exceptional” rating for financial and accountability/transparency. The ministry received a combined score of 69.09 out of a possible score of 70. According to their letter, “Only 7% of all charities we rate have received at least 4 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Mission Waco/Mission World out performs most charities in America.” The recognition is a testament of the hard work and integrity of Mission Waco’s administrative staff and commitment to be “beyond reproach” as a Christian ministry. The organization is also approved by the Better Business Bureau. As community-based organization that relies on donors, volunteers, collaborations, and funders. With over a million non-profits in the US, fiscal accountability has become a critical value for donors. We’re proud you can trust our integrity!
