On December 7, the Kirkwood Community of Christ Church was transformed (set up for) Kirk Care's annual Christmas box distribution project. Thanks to Kirkwood Community of Christ for the use of their facility.
December 8, the donated food was sorted and placed on tables preparing to fill the boxes. Over 40 volunteers including kids from various area schools participated.
December 9, 400 boxes were prepared for distribution. Again, volunteers did all the work. Kids from many schools helped. When one school had to depart, a bus would deliver a "fresh batch" from a different school to "pick up the slack."
On December 10, families who had received invitations picked up their Christmas boxes.
When the "action" was complete, the facility was converted back to church use for the following Sunday services.
Additionally, deliveries were made to Kirk Care clients in various retirement facilities.
Almost 190 families received Christmas Boxes from Kirk Care. Food donations (and money) were received from virtually every school, several churches, and several businesses, all in the Kirkwood area.
Thanks to our wonderful community we had another successful Christmas Food Box Collection and Delivery.
