  • 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. Cedric Robinson Reporter, Frisco Alumni Chapter

  • Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter Provides $14k in Scholarships | Kappa League 2023

    Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter Provides $14k in Scholarships During 2023 Kappa League Closeout and National Signing Day Ceremony The newly chartered Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter awarded $2000 scholarships to each member of its first Kappa League graduating class of seven High School seniors during the inaugural Kappa League Close Out Ceremony and National Signing Day Event held Saturday, May 6, 2023, at the Baylor Scott & White Physical Therapy Center, 3800 Gaylord Parkway in Frisco Texas. The Kappa League event was the culmination of FAC’s commitment to service in the Frisco community and the goals and ideals of Kappa League’s mission to help young men grow, receive, and develop their leadership talents in every phase of human endeavor. FAC Kappas Provide $2k Scholarships for Graduating Seniors Each of the graduating seniors in the program received a scholarship to be used to further their education at the college/university of their choosing along with the commitment of the FAC for continued guidance and moral support as they navigate the waters of college/university life. FAC Polemarch, Brother Keith Maddox provided the following summation on the progress made thus far, “I would say that our first year was outstanding! Proverbs 22:6 states, “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” The Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, Incorporated, took this to heart by mentoring on average over 30 young men monthly. The young men were exposed [to] and interacted with men of varying professional skills and experience. More so, the young men were given the opportunity to engage and have in-depth discussions on topics and issues that were relevant to their lives today as well as what they may face as adult black men. The year culminated with the awarding of $2,000 scholarships to those Kappa Leaguers that were graduating high school. Photos of Kappa Leaguers and their Families Accepting Scholarships FAC Kappas Lend a Hand to Frisco Youth In addition to the graduating seniors, FAC also provided those students in the program that are not yet graduating with awards in the form of certificates as congratulations for their involvement in the program and sincere desire for their continued participation. Brother Aaron Pugh, Chairman of the FAC Kappa League Committee, is pleased with the progress so far and believes that the event will continue to evolve over time, “The 2022-2023 academic year concluded our inaugural year for our Kappa League Program. We had almost 50 students in total; of which, all seven high school seniors received scholarships. As a result, this provides motivation to continue serving and achieving success. I am humbled to have served as the 2022-2023 Kappa League Chairman for Frisco (TX) Alumni, and I look forward to serving this upcoming 2023-2024 academic and getting more engagement from the brothers and the community. We as a Chapter are truly blessed.” In all, there were more than 70 members of FAC, Kappa Leaguers, and their parents in attendance for the ceremony. Although off to an impressive start, Polemarch Keith Maddox is looking forward to even greater heights for the program moving forward, “Going forward, the Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter plans to build on the first-year success of its Kappa League Program by expanding the opportunities offered, so that every field of Human Endeavor is made available to the young men participating in the program. In addition, Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter plans to continue to work in the community to solicit and build support to generate recognition to make its Kappa League Program exemplary within Kappa and the North Texas region.” Cedric Robinson Reporter, Frisco Alumni Chapter
