Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex and Executive Director Tillie Burgin have been making a huge difference for three decades, helping dreams come true for families in need across The American Dream City.

After serving as missionaries in Korea in the late 1970's, Burgin and her family spent seven years praying about doing missions locally. From a closet in Downtown Arlington, Burgin launched Mission Arlington on August 1, 1986.

Mission Arlington does a lot of great work in the community, providing a variety of services for people in need: food, dental care, health care, emergency assistance, school supplies, and much more.

Mission Arlington's annual Christmas Store is now open, helping families in need this holiday season at 400 W. South Street in Downtown.

Residents can visit the organization's website for more information and to learn how you can help touch the lives of people in Arlington this holiday season.
