More Support For Mission Outpost

Last week we learned we will be receiving a $5,000 Economic Outreach Bridge grant from the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation in recognition of “the significant impact being made to strengthen your local community via your outreach service programs.”

This grant comes at a perfect time, as we continue to experience great demand for the Mission Outpost, which helps to meet people’s basic needs of food, clothing and furniture.  In addition to general food expenses, the Mission Outpost also desperately needs a new truck! “White lightning” has served the Mission Outpost volunteers well but as you can see, it needs to be replaced. A new truck will allow the Mission Outpost to safely transport food donations and deliver furniture to families in need.

In addition to the grant, Thrivent has offered to match additional donations to the Mission Outpost made between Nov. 14, 2012 and March 31, 2013.  Thrivent will match at 50 cents for every dollar donated, up to a total grant of an additional $5,000.

You can donate by choosing the “Mission Outpost” field on our online giving page.

Thanks for your generosity!

Update: We’ve raised $400 as of Wednesday, November 21!
