MissionPalooza @Home is at the midway point. Today is day 3 and the outreach focus for today is aiding local food pantries. One of the highlights of MissionPalooza Week is our pantry day at St. Paul’s KCMO. Youth and adult volunteers look forward to this day every year. Youth enjoy being able to interact with those they are serving, which often differs from other worksites during the week. MissionPalooza volunteers help to prepare, cook, and serve at a community cookout and assist in the pantry handing out food and essential items to those in need.
The Episcopal Youth Community in West Missouri invites you to go through your pantry and pull out the non-perishable items that you will not be using, or have more than you need. Please be sure that all items are within the best by dates. Along with food items, we are collecting toiletries. Drop off locations are being finalized and will be announced shortly.
Join me in the WEMO Youth Community Zoom Room, link at www.WEMOYouth.com, every day this week at 9:30 am and 4 pm to check-in and chat about our experiences.
Watch social media all week for updates and other information about the outreach projects for the week. Please share pictures, videos, and thoughts on social media. Feel free to tag @WEMOYouth and use the hashtags #WEMOYouth #dwmo #MissionPalooza.
