August, 2016: Summer Highlights

We’ve been having a great + busy summer here at the Mission! We wanted to highlight a few things for you:

Bobbi Toads shoe donation!

We were blessed to give every single girl at our day camp new shoes this summer thanks to our friends from Bobbi Toads! Bob (of Bobbi Toads), his wife Sondra, and daughter Jacki also brought the girls lunch. Here are few pictures.

Additional large food donations

We have been blessed to be the recipients of huge donations of food from some additional sources this summer - Whole Foods, CostCo, Mariano’s, Perdue Chicken, an entire farmer’s market, and more. Neighbors’ carts have been very full at the Tuesday pantry!

Seniors Program

Our senior’s program meets every Tuesday for exercise, Bible study, lunch, and fellowship. This summer they were blessed to go on a trip to Bubba Gump’s on Navy Pier! Thanks to those who made this trip possible.

Kartwheels 4 Kids

We were VERY blessed to be the recipients of the funds from our friends at Kartwheels  4 Kids this summer! Each summer these young ladies (see picture) organize a block party to raise funds for an organization that helps hungry children. They raised OVER $5000 for the Mission! Thank you!
