The definition of public servant certainly includes helping those who otherwise would go without. And helping those in need is certainly the mission of Breckenridge Village of Tyler – KLTV's Community Spotlight for November.
Breckenridge Village serves mentally-challenged citizens and their families by providing a warm, loving environment through residential care services and day program activities.
Located on 78 acres near Tyler, Breckenridge Village is a planned community for adults with mild to moderate developmental disabilities, helping them grow and establish their own interests and their own identities.
The need is great and you can help by contacting Breckenridge Village and offering your time in the areas of vocational training, continuing education and recreation. Residents volunteer with Meals on Wheels, the East Texas Food Bank and participate in the Breckenridge Village Choir.
This is your opportunity to put a smile on someone's face, to serve a family in need and receive a special blessing during the holidays. Consider giving your time and money and no contribution of either is too small.
