Through your donations we were able to bless Mission Arlington with over 250 coats. They were extremely grateful and I wanted to share a special thank you note from the founder, Tillie Burgin.
Thank you, dear friends, for sponsoring a Coat Drive to benefit Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex. Many of you say, "Oh, don't send a note." But it helps me to be able to share and tell you what God is able to do with the gifts you give.
Recently, I was standing outside in the alley of Mission Arlington, and an older lady came to me and said, "I came here to ask for a mattress, and found that others are in greater need than I am. I sat in your front room for over an hour and listened to the heart break of so many people in need. I just wanted to hug every one of them and tell them they would be okay because they had made it to Mission Arlington where they would be helped." She said again, "I wish everyone could come and just be in your front room and hear the moms trying to get food, clothes, toiletries, rent help...," and on and on she went. It was evident that her heart had been changed as she walked away saying, "I need to go see what I can give. I will be right back."
Please know how important you are and how grateful we are for you and your hearts filled with care and compassion.
God bless you,
We also collected $15,000 that will go toward future Pink Voice projects. The offering that was taken at Pink Impact 2011 bought two vehicles for Perfect 10 Charity, and I can't wait to see what God will do next!
