Throughout June MCC is collecting donations for Spofford Home, an organization that cares for kids who have no homes and kids who suffer from mental illness. The month has just begun, and donations are already trickling in. Thus far, we have collected several boxes of crayons and $50 in gift cards to help buy school uniforms. MCC-Blue River is the destination campus for back-to-school supplies for these children.
Here’s what the kids at Spofford Home need:
Glue sticks and Elmer’s glue bottles
Wal-mart gift cards ($5 and up, for school uniforms)
School uniforms (Navy/Khaki bottoms, White/Navy tops)
For further information on this MCC donation, see the more detailed May 19, 2011 MCC Insider article.
Please send donations to Amy Slater at MCC-Blue River, 20301 E 78 Highway, Independence, MO 64057
