Mavs celebrate holiday season with Salvation Army
Dec. 17, 2013
ARLINGTON, Texas – The UT Arlington athletic department took part in its annual tradition of ringing the bells at The Parks at Arlington on Monday.
The Mavericks were represented by each of its athletic teams as well as various parts of the athletic department staff.
“The Salvation Army Kettle program is so representative of the holiday season that we are excited to continue our annual tradition of ringing the bell,” senior associate athletics director Debbie Garcia said. “The organization’s proximity to campus and their reputation for serving our community makes this a natural fit for UT Arlington athletics.”
The Salvation Army operates 7,546 centers in communities across the United States. These include food distribution, disaster relief, rehabilitation centers, anti-human trafficking efforts, and a wealth of children's programs. The work is funded through kettle donations, corporate contributions, and the sale of goods donated to our Salvation Army Family Stores. Eighty-two cents of every dollar spent supports the various missions across the country
