Dear Friends and Partners of Mission Southside,
We invite you to rejoice with us and PRAY!
On January 23, Mission Southside purchased a 15,000 square foot facility located at 168th Terrace and Ridgeview.  We held our Open House Celebration on Sunday, March 8.  Thank you to the more than 300 guests who came to celebrate with us.
With your help, we were able to raise all of the necessary funds through our Help Build Hope Campaign to pay for the facility with cash ... $290,000.  
Much work has already been done on the facility.  Clean up, new sump pumps, removal of walls, drywall, outdoor clean up, drain cleaning.  In the weeks to come, new HVAC units will be installed, a security system, networking lines, and a kitchen.  All provided by many of our generous business partners.
March in designated as renovation and painting month.  You can sign up for our Saturday Serve Days on our Volunteer link.
Our current building wish list:  basement flooring/tile, 800 linear feet of chair rail for the basement, paint for the entire facility, commercial vacuum cleaners, two rolling custodial carts, 30 tubes of white calking, a 10 unit phone system, and 6 large rolling commercial trash cans.  Let us know if you are willing to donate any of these items.
Thank you to so many who have made this dream a reality.
Your Mission Southside Team
