On Saturday, June 28, an amazing difference was made in the community when people worked together.
People from all ages, abilities and walks of life contributed to the first Osceola Community Make a Difference Mission Day.
From four-year-old girls to 90+ year-old great grandmas and grandpas, each gave what resources and talents they could.
Paint and supplies were purchased to paint the main building of Restoration Ranch, a shelter and life-recovery ministry in our community. That Saturday, despite weather challenges, they painted the entire lower half of the Ranch and completed scraping and preparing the upper half.
If you would like to help complete the painting, contact Brad Davis (641-340-9654) to volunteer.
The group would like to thank the following:
Highway Lumber – donation of all brushes, rollers and painting supplies
Osceola Farm and Home – paint discount and coordination of donated paint
Osceola Fareway – bottled water for paint crew
Casey’s No. 1898 on North Main – Seven large bags of ice
LuAnn Bobolz – professional event photography
Robinson’s True Value Hardware – loan of huge ice chest for water
Osceola HyVee – online event advertising
Kale’s Funeral Home – online event advertising
Also, the many community members who donated paint, time and talent to make the first Community Make a Difference Mission Day.
The next Community Make a Difference Day will be Saturday, Aug. 30, at Cross Ministries.
