About Our Local Charity serving Midland & Odessa, TX
Midland County Livestock Association (MCLA) is a local 501(c)3 nonprofit benefiting Midland County Youth in 4H and FFA programs through an annual Livestock Show held each January at the Midland County Horseshoe Arena. The mission of MCLA is to develop the character of our youth - our future leaders - through competitive livestock projects which teach them critical life skills including personal responsibility, financial and time management, fair play, good sportsmanship, hard work and integrity. Students learn through annual projects and are rewarded for superior accomplishments through a community supported premium charity auction held following the annual Midland County Livestock Show. The Charitable contributions that the kids receive through our sponsors and donations at the Charity Auction not only reward the local youth for their countless hours of hard work put in to each project, but also goes to their future projects, college funds, and financial support for them to compete at the state level at the five Texas Major Livestock Shows that follow the Midland County Livestock Show. The Texas Major Stock Shows are the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo, San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, Houston Stock Show and Rodeo and Rodeo Austin.
We create promising futures here at the Midland County Livestock Association. Many of our youth members would not have the opportunity to embrace their interests, share them with the local community, and succeed as they move forward with their education without our sponsors and donations.
The goal of 4-H is "engaging youth to reach their fullest potential while advancing the field of youth development". At the MCLA we strive every day to achieve this goal, providing the youth within our community a better opportunity to achieve success later in life.
If you would like to help us continue to make your local students’ dreams come true, please visit our sponsorships page or make a donation now with the donate now button on our home page.
