Buckner Family Place 10th Anniversary

by Tashun Chism

Buckner family place invited guests from all over East Texas to help celebrate it's 10th anniversary.

Buckner's mission is to help single East Texas parents. It provides them with safe, affordable housing and free child care while they pursue degrees from Angelina College. A newly built community room was also dedicated to philanthropist Murphy George. George says he is honored, but Buckner's work is what is most important.

"The most gratifying part of it all was whenever we saw these ladies leaving here. They left here with a good education. They left here with a good job. That's what it's all about," George told us.

Buckner Family Place has helped 230 families, including 500 children, since it first opened 10 years ago.
