Angels & Moore

Evelyn Moore has her shop on the same block as The Main Place. And how convenient this IS to have her sooooo close by. If we need alterations, DONE. If we need a suit or a dress pressed, DONE. If we need a raffle item, DONE. The list goes on as we have a gem of a neighbor that love us and we love her! Thanks Evelyn. For the last few Christmas’s, Evelyn has hand-made a quilt that the IWN raffles off. All proceeds go to The Main Place. Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email

Good morning Sharon I am not working today but had to write to tell you how incredible The Main Place is for our community. I had the same reaction there as I had with Family Promise of Irving–knew it was a great concept to meet a specific need–but until you actually experience it in action, you can’t really grasp the effect. Our client, the single mom, I brought yesterday has been working hard to secure a job and get her life back on track. The volunteers made her feel so special and we had so much fun shopping. I don’t think Neimans could have topped the customer service! I thank God for your vision and hard work to bring and maintain The Main Place in Irving. I know by the acknowledgment of your supporters on the wall that you have had great support from all aspects of the community. I will be spreading the word to all I know about what a jewel we have in our city. Thanks to you and all your GREAT volunteers for making our experience so delightful. Blessings, Terri Petty Community Service Ministry Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email

Christmas Wish Lists

In 2011, we took on the Christmas wish lists of 65 plus homeless teens referred from IISD and Winfree Academy Charter School. The Las Colinas Women’s Association was responsible for 20 wish lists and beauty business owners at Salons at the Plaza filled an additional seven. Members of Irving Women’s Network bought for the remaining forty. In a departure from the norm, two trees displayed to the public on our behalf asked for items with ongoing needs for distribution at The Main Place. A Christmas tree at the YMCA asked for gift cards to grocery, book, discount and department stores, as well as movie theaters, fast food and sit down restaurants. Olive Garden’s tree asked for items such as pajamas, socks, blankets, pillows, sleeping bags, towels, linens, etc. Christmas 2011 was the second year The Main Place hosted a distribution party for the teens. (Previously, the filled wish lists were given to IISD Project PASS to hand out so we missed all the fun.) Homemade cookies, apple cider and hot chocolate were served by volunteers dressed in Santa hats and reindeer horns. Santa Claus was present to personally wish a Merry Christmas to more than 50 guests. John Moore, a Pulitzer award winning photo journalist with Getty Images, flew in from New York and took photos of the event. (His mom is a devoted volunteer and supporter of The Main Place.)
