There's a wonderful organization here in the Permian Basin that helps families in Midland provide homes for children living in the state's custody or to a child available for adoption in Texas or internationally. It's called Buckner Family Place, and they provide the needed resources for single-parent families to live in a safe, secure environment while they complete their educational or vocational goals. They also learn the skills necessary to become self-sufficient. We're very fortunate to have a wonderful place right here in West Texas that's so vital to the family unit in our area... And we're also fortunate to have a beloved business that recognizes the contributions they make and how important they are--and who is willing to give back so they can continue to make a difference.

They'll come to the store and create fall door decorations for their homes for the holidays to help make it feel more like a home for the kids! Then on Saturday, October 23rd there'll be a drive for diapers, formula, cash donations, etc-all benefiting Buckner Family Place. There will also be a raffle that day for great prizes.
