Kids on a Mission started in July 2013 as an opportunity for younger kids to do mission work. Many times mission trips are designated for older kids and adults. All kids should know from a young age that they can help! They don’t necessarily have to be older to help out people in need. So kids from around the area gather for a three day event at First United Methodist Church where they learn about local and global missions, work together to determine who they could help, and come up with a plan for how they can help that group in need.
During the month of October, Kids on a Mission will be collecting new and gently used (please make sure gently used items are clean prior to drop off) winter weather clothing to be distributed to local schools. We are specifically in need of items such as coats, hats, gloves, and especially snow boots for preschool through high school ages.
You can drop items off at the drop spot which is just past the church office (516 Kellogg Avenue) next to the MICA food cart.
On the first Saturday of each month, we will hold a drop off event where Birthday Club members can drop off any donations they collected in the previous month. There will be special months where we will also hold an event on the first Saturday of the month where we will be able to distribute items given from a previous month.
