Colors for Caring Kicked off at MISD Today

Superintendent Dr. Jim Vaszauskas is very grateful for the support he received during his bout with thymoma cancer, so he wants to spread the power of community support through a Colors for Caring initiative.

On the first Monday of each month in the 2015-16 school year, Mansfield ISD is encouraging the community to wear a color that represents a cancer that affected the life of a loved one.

“It is amazing to me how many of our MISD family’s lives have been touched by cancer,” said Dr. Vaszauskas. “I can personally attest to the power of community support and want others to know and experience the same through our Colors for Caring initiative.”

The Colors for Caring Days for 2015-16 are:

  • October 5
  • November 2
  • December 7
  • February 1
  • March 7
  • April 4
  • May 2

Please feel free to share pictures of how you are participating in the Colors for Caring Days by using the hashtag #ColorsForCaring on Twitter and Facebook!
