The Spirit of Texas Festival, presented by H-E-B Creamy Creations, will donate a portion of festival proceeds to benefit Mobility Worldwide Brazos Valley work. The family-friendly event is scheduled for March 23-25 at College Station’s Wolf Pen Creek Park.

Mobility Worldwide is a faith-based non-profit that has a mission to assist people who have mobility problems in developing countries so they can lead a normal life. Volunteers build mobility carts at workshops hosted locally.

In fact, the Mobility Worldwide Brazos Valley has built over 3,000 mobility carts while, together with 26 other workshops in the USA, have built a total of over 68,000 carts. “Mobility Worldwide Brazos Valley plans to create more opportunities for needy people in developing countries who have mobility problems by providing them with the transportation they need to go to school or work, provide for their families and participate in their community,” said Colin Wilkinson, the Mobility Worldwide Brazos Valley chairman.

Festival organizers are happy to shine the spotlight on the non-profit’s good work. “We hope that more people will become aware of Mobility Worldwide in Brazos Valley and see that locally, there are many ways we can help a global cause,” said Cynthia Caronna, the Spirit of Texas Festival founder and executive director.
