The Christmas Social was filled with singing, laughter and fellowship. Our senior citizen clients are sure to be in the Christmas spirit now. We send our love and gratitude to all of our volunteers who put together such an amazing Social Outreach event. MCCC wishes everyone a Merry Christmas!
July 19th welcomed another twenty-two clients to St. Philip’s Presbyterian Church for a Senior Social. This month, our theme was Picnic at the Beach and our clients and volunteers came ready for a day in the sand. Thanks to several of our generous volunteers, we served hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad, watermelon, and homemade cupcakes for lunch. In addition to delicious food and great company, our young-at-heart seniors also played Beach Ball Volleyball and added their favorite seashells to sand-filled mason jars for a beachy home decoration. Ms. Peggy finished her summer-themed wordsearch first and won a mug filled with candy as her prize. Ms. Nancy won this month’s drawing for a picture frame and took a picture with two of her Social Outreach friends to put in it.
We are so thankful to all of our volunteers for their cheerful and willing service. Our clients had a great time at the beach this month and we’re looking forward to next month’s Fiesta.Watch the Video
Gateway Church VII mobilized 172 young adults for their Big Event day of service in October. This amazing army of volunteers spread out one Saturday morning across Northeast Tarrant County to impact 29 residences of senior neighbors. They raked leaves, pruned bushes, planted flowers, washed windows and stained wheelchair ramps that had been constructed earlier in the year by other registered volunteers of Mid-Cities Care Corps. Take a look at Gateway’s video of their Big Event experience.Watch The Video
Usually when one hears the phrase “spring break” they think of that beautiful time when they were a kid just sitting at home relaxing and putting off the home work that was assigned to them. This past Spring Break Mid-Cities Care Corps was fortunate enough to meet a group of kids and their families from Compass Christian Church that wanted their spring break to mean more than that. The first Saturday of their vacation over 200 youth and their families gathered to go help our senior clients. The work they did impacted 23 seniors throughout Tarrant County, and this has been MCCC’s biggest work day to date. The senior clients that were served that weekend are still calling the office with heartfelt gratitude, and our organization is so thankful for the hard work this young group contributed towards the MCCC mission.Watch The Video
Triumph Fabrications employees closed out the year with 14 workers giving 68 volunteer hours to rake leaves, prune trees and even repaint one home for MCCC senior clients. The yards were beautiful, and there were smiles all around when these folks finished their day of service. We salute the volunteer spirit of Alan George and his great team from Triumph.
