Thank you for your support and assistance! (P.S. Although we have some funding in place, we are still looking for some sponsorship for this event if you or your organization, business, church, civic or social club are interested-please let me know!)
There is also a Project Connect in Independence on Saturday, October 7, 2017. Let me know if you are interested in that event. These one-day service events are a great way for local churches, civic groups, chambers of commerce, seniors to gain community service hours, businesses and others to serve those less fortunate in the community and develop team-building time together with some of the biggest hearts in their community. Please help us spread the word about them and join to make them happen. Remember, we need you and your help!
