Making a difference together

Published: Wednesday, July 16, 2014 10:54 a.m. CDT

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.

For more information, or to volunteer, please call Dr. Al Adams (641-931-0567).
