More Information

Over the past 13 years, Abilene has been remarkable in blessing the homeless and poor through Mission: Thanksgiving. The 2011 drive filled up 14 semi-trailers and raised over $140,000.00. 5,500 vehicles drove through Arrow Ford to donate in just one day. In spite of the overwhelming response, all donations collected for 2011 were distributed within 11 months.

One of the ways people and businesses can help is by becoming a community sponsor. Sponsors have given anywhere from $500 to $10,000. But always remember that any donation is a blessing to the poor and homeless of Abilene.
