Since 1963, Twin City Mission has been providing help to those in the community in need. Join Twin City Mission on March 5 at The Brazos Center for their 50th Birthday Celebration and Luncheon. The event will begin at 11:50am (in honor of the 50th year of service) and will have Texas A&M University’s Head Football Coach Kevin Sumlin as guest speaker. There will be short videos explaining the main programs, as well as musical accompaniment by the Rudder High Jazz Band.
Originally conceived to assist the homeless, Twin City Mission is a non-profit umbrella agency for a number of service projects throughout the Brazos Valley. Projects include Phoebe’s Home, which offers domestic violence services; The Bridge, offering housing services for the homeless; STAR counseling services for at-risk youth; and Alice’s Attic & Second Chance Resale Stores offering clothing and household items at reasonable prices. Twin City Mission seeks to help individuals and families in the process of rebuilding lives and self worth.
Ron Crozier, the director of community relations for Twin City Mission, says his passion is the organization’s ability to provide emotional support. He describes the organization as a people business. “With every individual, every family, we start the process of rebuilding,” Crozier says. “We give encouragement. We give respect. These are people first.”
Crozier says the best way for area residents to get involved is to volunteer at the community’s cafe and serve meals, and watch the effect a single tray of food can have on a person’s life.
Tickets for the 50th Celebration event are $25 per individual, or $500 for table sponsors. Proceeds will benefit the continuation of the projects and services offered by Twin City Mission. Register online at www.twincitymission.org by February 24. For further information email email@example.com or call (979) 822-7511.
Crozier looks to the future of the organization with hope. “I’m asked often what has been the best day at the Mission, but really we still haven’t had the best day – our best day is still to come,” he says.
