3e McKinney (dba 3e United) was founded in 2006 by retired McKinney City Manager Larry Robinson and a group of churches who wanted to engage their church families in service to their community. Over the years, those opportunities included community clean up, Clothe the Child, and Run for Cover, a fundraiser for agencies focused on homelessness.
By far, their greatest impact has been their partnership with the McKinney ISD Reach Program. Together they engaged churches and businesses to adopt the Title One schools in McKinney. Many of the original churches are still engaged with their adopted school. The impact upon that school extends to the leadership, the teachers, and the students and their families.
With the success of the Adopt-A-School program, 3e is now focused on helping to increase the number of mentors at all schools. That personal connection has made such a difference in the student behavior, attention and desire to learn.
In 2019, the Board of Directors and Covenant Church Partners met to review their mission, and see God's direction for the organization. The result of that meeting included a new mission and a new direction.
