Critical needs: Like the youth we serve, All Things Made New is growing! Not only are we looking to serve more clients than ever before, but we are also hoping to grow our organization in order to better serve those clients. This requires funds for salaries for new positions, better technology, and general administrative costs.

Here are some of the ways in which we hope to grow:
– Hire a full time Family and Community Engagement Coordinator
– Hire a full time Program Manager for all youth programs
– Hire a full time Volunteer Coordinator
– Update computers and software for all programs

These are big goals but we know that we cannot provide the best possible outcomes for the youth and families we work with without having qualified and dedicated staff with the tools they need to succeed. North Texas Giving Day won’t cover all these costs, but it will help us on our way towards our growth goals!

Critical needs: 10% of families with children living in Irving fall below the poverty level according to the 2019 American Community Survey (based on the federal poverty threshold chart, poverty level is below about $8/hour for a family with one adult and one child!). 77% of the children in the Irving Independent School district are considered low-income, qualifying for free or reduced-cost lunches. Any unexpected change or problem such as reduced work hours, a visit to the emergency room, or broken-down vehicle, can quickly send poor households into crisis where basic needs are often unmet.

95% of the families Irving Cares serve are low-income. These families need help more than ever during the pandemic! Demand for housing assistance is enormous-Irving Cares provided assistance to nearly 200% more families last year. As many people need to re-enter the workforce, there is increased participation in our Invest in Yourself program.

Irving, TX 75062

972-831-8818

Critical needs: The ISO’s Healing Notes program continues to expand, and funds are needed to provide music for our “Bats ‘n Brass” Miracle League program. In partnership with the YMCA, the Miracle League provides children with physical limitations and other special needs the opportunity to play softball/baseball in a safe, fun atmosphere on their own “Miracle Field.” The Irving Symphony’s professional brass quintet perform fun concerts at their games as a show of team spirit and support for the participants and their families.

We also bring Healing Notes to cancer patients at the Texas Center for Proton Therapy and senior/assisted living facilities in the area. The positive impact of our Healing Notes is that an otherwise under-served population is being reached at no cost to them for the enjoyment of the musical arts in their healing and restorative routines. Music can lead to an uptick in morale and well-being which is a huge positive feature to any community.

The ISO is committed to performance excellence, musical education, entertainment and cultural enrichment for all ages and people groups. We are also in need of funds to underwrite six community concerts over the next season and assist with free youth concerts for all the Irving middle school aged students (over 6,000 each year).

Mothers Abandoned or Widowed

3317 Finley Rd Suite 120C

Irving, TX 7506

2817-545-7843

Critical needs: Our greatest challenge is to provide reliable transportation for the abandoned or widowed mothers we serve. Without reliable transportation, these mothers will be unable to stay employed to provide for their families or to continue their education. While we fix up unreliable automobiles, our goal is to provide good used cars or new ones to ensure that their families are safe, and income is sustained.

We aspire to have our own facility to keep cars on hand, provide fluid changes (oil, transmission, etc.) for these new single moms. In addition, to provide tutoring, mentoring, SAT prep and finance education. Donate here.

North Texas population growth is causing the needs of the region to increase. Our partners for housing battered women and children, those dealing with human trafficking, and those providing felt needs such as food and bedding are all discussing creative ways to meet the needs presented.

Your support of Mercury One supports all of these areas. Your willingness to stand with our team gives us the opportunity to continue working with our partners in North Texas, lifting the human spirit, and making lives better for those in need. Donate here.

New Philharmonic Orchestra of Irving

3333 N. MacArthur Blvd., Suite 300

Irving, TX 75062

972-252-7558 ext. 1221

Critical needs: Funds will be needed for normal orchestra costs – music licensing, soloists and guest artists, facilities for concert-half concerts and rehearsals and personnel. Our ticket income, never the largest segment of our annual budget income, could be slower to expand after pandemic restrictions, since audience size may continue to be restricted, at least at first, and there may be some hesitancy in resuming in-person concert attendance in our 700-seat concert hall.

Additional funds from Giving Day can also help us continue our online offerings, begun during the pandemic – helping cover costs of professionally recording each performance during the season to offer online to music lovers, schools and the public. And as always, Giving Day funds will make it possible for us to continue our “Sundays at the Symphony” concerts from October through May in this exciting 35th season when the arts are “reopening” after a year of coronavirus restrictions. Donate here.

We are looking to raise $5000 in order to provide as many backpacks of socks and under clothing for the homeless. This year, we were given 1000 pairs of socks by Bombas. This donation of socks had a huge impact on allowing the charity to provide more bags this year than in our previous 4 years. The funds are used to purchase t-shirts, underwear and some hygiene products as well as more socks. With COVID-19 and the coming winter months, we would like to provide to as many people the comfort of having socks on their feet. Donate here.

The remaining 16% comes from voluntary, tax-deductible donations. For this we rely on donations to bridge the gap between what it costs to educate the student and the tuition rate. Donate here.
