All the money raised by The MOST Amazing Race funds Salvation Army programs in the Arlington Mansfield area. To date, the race has raised more than $55,000. Thanks in part to funds raised from this event, we are able to serve more than 7,300 people a year. Here are specific ways that money helps.
Every night, nearly 15 families sleep in our Familiy Life Center. Families come in a wide variety of sizes and make up. We take them all. Some stay for two months. Some for two years. Our amazing staff in the FLC work with each family individually to understand and meet their needs.
Daily, we serve 50-100 youth through after school programs or summer day camps.
The mission of The Salvation Army is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination. In addition to the above programs, we have a weekly soup kitchen. Each summer, we open our building to those in need of heat relief through our Cooling Stations. These and other programs are supported by the MOST Amazing Race and other fundraisers throughout the year.
