Drivers can now show their faith on their vehicle’s license plate and help out a good cause at the same time.  The Calvary Hill license plate is now available from My Plates and features three crosses with the quote “One State Under God.”  

A portion of the proceeds from the plate will go to Glory Gang. The non-profit group is based in Nacogdoches County in East Texas. According to My Plates, the group helps more than 1,000 kids each year.

Glory Gang estimates, over 75 percent of all students in Nacogdoches are from low income, and in some cases single parent, homes.

“The message of the Calvary Hill plate is the message that we give to the children we work with:  there is hope,” said Matt Rocco, Glory Gang board member. “We believe the new plate will appeal to a lot of Texans who believe as we do and who will like knowing that sharing a Christian message from their cars will also help kids in need.”

According to My Plates, Texans have bought more than 86,000 plates since 2009 resulting in more than $9.1 million in the general revenue fund.

That money is used to fund various programs and agencies, including state parks, school lunch programs and game, fish and water safety.

Many of the plates start at $55 and the price goes up from there. You can check them out for yourself by clicking here
