MWCares Foundation and Partners Donate One Million Pounds of Food

For the past four years, the MWCares Foundation has made the Thanksgiving Holiday a little brighter for more than 8,500 families in Dallas and Tarrant County by providing turkeys, chickens, and staples to enjoy the holiday without having to worry about not having enough to eat.

The Foundation is headed by Mitchell Ward, CEO of MW Logistics and member of Frisco, (TX) Alumni Chapter (FAC). Accommodating an event of this magnitude requires an enormous amount of planning and coordination to make sure that the necessary food procurement and delivery, traffic coordination, volunteers, security, and other logistics come together seamlessly to ensure a stellar program for those families with a need. To that end, Ward, his wife Pamela, and his children work diligently along with their corporate partners to make sure an operation of this size runs smoothly year after year.

This year, MWCares and its partners – American Airlines, Albertson’s, City of Arlington, Tarrant Area Foodbank, Cotton Bowl, AT&T Stadium, and the Big Good – donated one million pounds of food and facilities to area residents. A short video on this year’s event is available here:

Since 2019, it has been the mission of the MWCares Foundation to give back to the community in a way that helps the largest number of people possible, says Ward who along with his wife Pamela are the founders of the MWCares Foundation. “I know what it is to not always have and I never want to forget where I came from.” Mitchell and Pamela both believe that giving back to the community is imperative to ensure that individuals have an opportunity to reach their full potential.

MWCares is the philanthropic arm of MW Logistics, LLC. Their mission is to support and uplift our communities by providing resources that strengthen them. These resources include areas such as food insecurity, housing, education, health, and economic development.

The work that the MWCares Foundation is doing in the DFW Metroplex comes at a much-needed time as food insecurity in the area is on the rise. Research from Feeding America indicates that the food insecurity rate is 11.9 percent in North Texas (The national rate is 10.4 percent). This means there are approximately 638,340 food-insecure people (including 218,970 children or 15.8 percent) in the North Texas Food Bank 13-county service area.

Year after year, Mitchell Ward, his family, and partners make sure that families in the North Texas area are not part of this statistic.

Through both words and deeds, it’s abundantly clear that MW truly cares.
