Public Note: Mission Waco’s School Supply Store and the Christmas Toy Store are NOT “fund-raising” projects. The monies collected during sales operations are designated for the purchase of more items for each store. Any remaining funds after each project, is designated as “seed money” for the next year’s seasonal ministry.
NOTE** Low-income parents will be required to attend a Parent Resource session and then be given a voucher to purchase a new back pack, (filled with the above selected items). The filled back pack will sell for $5/child – a discount of 80% or greater. Limit of 4 children per household. Mission Waco’s philosophy on assistance is that providing discounted items (instead of free items) allows parents to participate in providing for their children and to shop with pride and dignity. Sales revenue will be used towards purchase of more back packs and specified items.
