“Mission Accomplished!” at Mission Arlington

For the third year in a row, a group of HTG volunteers boarded a bus from the Hilton Anatole in Dallas bound for Mission Arlington, all with one common goal: have fun, make a difference and share in the mission of serving others.

Over 40 volunteers including HTG employees and members arrived at Mission Arlington and were greeted by Executive Director Tillie Burgin, who has been serving the people of her community for more than two decades. Almost instantly, one can notice Tillie’s passion for serving and the work she is doing at Mission Arlington and in the community.

HTG volunteers were separated into three groups, as to divide and conquer, and make the most of our time to clean the medical and dental clinics, sort household items, and move and handle large boxed donations from trucks into the building.

After the work was completed, our group gathered again, not exhausted, but almost re-energized, from the feeling of helping those in our community who are in need, if only for a couple of hours. We even had enough energy and high enough spirits to join Tillie and her team in song!

Last year, Mission Arlington provided school supplies to approximately 9,000 students. To offer our support, supplies were collected throughout the week in Dallas at the HTG Registration Desk. Hands That Give was able to donate bags, paper, markers, crayons and other basic essential supplies. We are thankful to all those who contributed to our cause and dropped off donations during the week.

We are especially thankful to our friends at the Hilton Anatole who made a generous donation of school supplies for Mission Arlington, as well as, the members of HTG22 who donated the cash winnings of their Best Idea Contest.

If you could not join us at the Mission Arlington Hands That Give service project and are still interested in helping Mission Arlington help others, you may donate anytime.

With our third year in the books with Hands That Give serving Mission Arlington, we are proud to claim, “Mission Accomplished!”
