**Please be aware our monthly meeting location has changed to:
Cacharel Restaurant & Grand Ballroom
2221 East Lamar Blvd. - 9th Floor
Arlington, Texas 76006
Take a break from the office and holiday stress for a little time to give to charity, meet the 2012 MCHRA Board of Directors and help plan for the coming year. The December 7 event will feature a fundraiser event benefiting Helping Restore Ability.
This year's fundraising event will include a raffle for gift cards, gift baskets and other gifts. Chances are $5 per ticket or 6 for $25.
In addition to the raffle, MCHRA is requesting toy donations for the children of the clients of Helping Restore Ability. The children range in age of birth to 18 years old so any age appropriate toy would be acceptable. Gift cards to Toys R Us, Wal Mart or Target are also encouraged. Anyone who donates a $25 gift will receive 6 tickets for the raffle.
This year's event is benefitting Helping Restore Ability which assists disabled individuals throughout Texas. Their goal is to assist them to remain self sufficient. According to their website the mission is, "To promote independence and enrich the lives of those we serve." Through its Consumer Managed Personal Attendant Service Program (CMPAS), they provide home attendant care to clients with severe physical disabilities, including senior citizens with age related disabilities. For information on additional donations please see the HRA website: Helping Restore Ability.
MCHRA will also hold its annual board recognition and swearing in of new board officers during the meeting. It is still not too late to volunteer for 2012. Contact Dennis Veit today for more information.
