Mission Center

Help us with our mission . . .

History:  Our Mission Center had its beginning in the 1940’s.  It started with neighbors putting together a box of clothing to send to a needy family. After several years of operating from garages, the Mission Center called an unused mobile classroom its home.  Finally, a new building was blessed and dedicated by Archbishop Ignatius J. Strecker on December 16, 1990.  This new center was paid in full on November 5, 1991, all by donations. Relying totally on volunteer help, and dedicated to helping those in need, the Center has grown from sending one box of clothing to annually sending over 100,000 lb. of clothing, household and other useful items – and in the past even furniture [4000 boxes] to foreign countries, including Brazil, Africa, India, the Philippines and Mexico.  The rest is shipped to 42 places in the U.S., including many prisons, to New York, New Jersey, Texas, California, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Arizona, Colorado, Missouri and Kansas.

Nominal offerings are given for the donated items.  Those in need of assistance such as fire victims, newborns, and children who need help are given necessary items free of charge.  The Center works with clients of SRS, NEKCAP, Care Homes and Recycling.  Proceeds go to the Missions of the Church around the world.

Today, the work of approximately 60 volunteers make the Center operate, with Rita Robke in charge.
