News: On the road againTuesday, August 28, 2012 1:13 PM
Except for rising gas prices, most of us don’t think too much about what it takes to get from one place to another. When our transportation breaks down on occassion, we experience the inconvenience of shuttling or sharing vehicles with others in order to get where we need to go on any particular day. But it isn’t a crisis. The inconveniences are short-lived and the memories fade when our vehicles are back up and running.
What would it be like if life’s circumstances had brought you to a point where you didn’t have any transportation at all?
For more than two decades, Mission Arlington® has been in the business of providing free transportation for people in need.
As the school year begins, one of our delights is the partnership we have with parents to help get their children to school.
Our focus is in particular areas where, because of distance, the Arlington ISD isn’t able to bus the children in, but where these students would have to walk across major thoroughfares (i.e., Cooper) to get to school.
We absolutely love working with the parents and getting these students to school. What a privilege!
Thank you for all of the ways that you support Mission Arlington®’s work with the children and youth of our community.
