FOOD PANTRY/CLOTHES CLOSET
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink…I was naked and you gave me clothing.” —Matthew 25:35
We often forget that some of our close neighbors are lacking life’s basic needs – food and clothing. The Food Pantry and Clothes Closet have enabled us to serve those throughout the Kansas City area by:
The Robert and Shirley Meneilly Center for Mission at 99th and Mission Road provides a wonderful environment to help fulfill our neighbors’ basic needs with more food storage, a pristine setting and expanded food selection.
