In 1999, local churches and nonprofit groups banded together to make sure that every child in the area gets a gift for Christmas. The group developed into Common Ground.
For more than two decades, members of the churches and groups have provided clothes and toys for children throughout the Mansfield ISD.
Registration for Christmas assistance is the third weekend in October. Participants need to have identification, proof of residency in the Mansfield ISD and a pay stub.
Gifts will be distributed through the local churches that "adopt" the children. More than 1,100 children were served in 2021. All recipients remain anonymous.
