We shipped a lot of kits to Baltimore, Maryland in light of the unrest in that area to help the victims that were affected. The kit shipment included 1,008 Health, 504 Layette and 504 School Kits.
We were able to offer the Susquehanna Conference Camping Program supplies of coolers, balls, and s’more sticks for the camp fires.
The shoe drive is well underway and we will meet the goal of 7,500 shoes by the end of Annual Conference 2015.
Mission Central had a Facility Security Assessment completed by the PA Task Force on Security. Their assessment was that Mission Central was in pretty good shape in the area of security. They gave us some suggestions to bolster what was already in place. A new door and security sign-in checklist was put into place dealing with the alarm system. The wiring for the new telephone system is finished and the new phone system will be installed on the 29th of June 2015 (thanks in part to a grant from Community Aid.) We will be setting up at this year’s Susquehanna Annual Conference to sort and bag our shoes as this year’s hands-on project for interaction with Missions.
The month of May saw a lot of activity at Mission Central as you will see in the following reporting numbers:
Total Mission Central Volunteers: 414
Total Warehouse Output: $466,812
Total Lives Reached: 141,365
Thank you for your continued support of Mission Central and all of our partners.
