Times Charities 2013


Times Charities was formed more than 20 years ago by a group of area philanthropists who wanted to find a way to help those less fortunate. Previously its own nonprofit, Times Charities begins the holiday season as part of the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation, under its umbrella of services.

All donations go to the three partners: Faith Mission, Interfaith Ministries and Grace Ministries in Burkburnett; overhead expenses are not paid from donations.

No money is spent from the Times Charities account until the situations of those seeking help are verified by our partners.

Donations can be made in the form of cash, checks and debit or credit cards. Make checks payable to Times Charities/WFACF, and mail them to 807 Eighth St., Suite 750, Wichita Falls, TX 76301-3334. For more information call Frances Tate at 940-720-3490.

To donate by credit or debit card, go to www.wfacf.org and click on “Make a Gift.” You can also call 940-766-0829 and we’ll take your debit or credit card information over the phone.

The fund drive starts Thanksgiving Day and ends Christmas Day. The donations and the donors, often anonymous, will be showcased each day in the Times Record News.
