WHY:
It’s that time of year again and our community needs your help! The 19th annual Mission Thanksgiving will be crucial to the homeless and poor communities of Abilene, Merkel, and Clyde as the need for food, clothing, and daily necessities continues to become greater.

Love & Care is currently serving over 4,000 meals a week in their soup kitchen as well as ministering to people on the streets. There are an estimated 400+ residential homeless people in Abilene, and about 300+ more transient homeless travel through Abilene each year. Children make up 10%-15% of these numbers, which do not include the poor who benefit from the food and clothing services.

Arrow Ford, as well as all of the Mission Thanksgiving sponsors, would like to ask for your support of this organization as most food, supplies, and funds will be depleted after the October revival. Please consider giving – even the smallest donations make an impact!

When donating, we ask you to consider this:
$1.00 is enough to feed 2 people…
$10.00 is enough to feed 24 people…
$100.00 is enough to feed 232 people…
$500.00 is enough to feed 1,162 people…
$1,000 is enough to feed 2,325 people…

“When the poor and needy search for water and there is none, and their tongues are parched from thirst, then I, the LORD, will answer them. I the God of Israel will never abandon them.” – Isaiah 41:17

HISTORY:
In 1999, Arrow Dealerships met with Pastor Mark Hewitt of Love and Care Ministries regarding his ministry for the poor and homeless in the Abilene area. Arrow realized that it could easily make an impact as a community leader in educating the public regarding this program and raise public awareness. The location of their main Arrow Ford store could be used to increase the volunteer base and donation of clothing, bedding, money and food. There was great potential to hold an event to accomplish their objectives for Love and Care ministries. Year after year, Mission Thanksgiving is more successful that the last. In 1999, our first Mission Thanksgiving filled 1.5 trailers and raised $6,000 with all types of canned goods and clothing. Now, here we are in 2017 and the event has grown tremendously having collected 11 semi-trailers of clothing and food and raising over $140,000 in 2016.

Mission Thanksgiving is a chance for the community of Abilene and Big Country to band together in hopes of aiding Love and Care Ministries in helping the homeless and poor of Abilene. Each November for the past eighteen years, Mission Thanksgiving has benefited the homeless and poor in tremendous ways. Not only has it provided necessities such as food and clothing, Mission Thanksgiving has supplied the necessary monetary donations to help continue the Soup Kitchen that is open 5 days a week, as of 2016 the Soup Kitchen is serving over 4,000 hot meals a week. In addition to helping fund the development of two facilities in the rule communities Merkel and Clyde. 

Last year alone, we raised 11 semi-trailers full of clothing, non-perishable, blankets, sleeping bags, coats, bottled water and drinks, shoes, socks, and hygiene items for Love and Care Ministries. In addition, over $140,000 was raised, with thousands of vehicles driving through Arrow Ford to donate in just one day. There was also a $65,000 Pepsi product donation. In spite of the overwhelming response, all donations collected for 2016 were distributed within 11 months. This is an incredible gift each year for Love and Care, the homeless, and the poor of Abilene. 

Within just 43¢, Love and Care Ministries can create 1 sack lunch. Even the smallest donations can help make a difference in these people's lives.
