“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill
Mission Project participants are active, contributing members of their community. Their service activities include Aktion Club and MP Explorers.
Supported by Old Mission Kiwanis Club, Aktion Club gives Mission Project participants and other adults with disabilities opportunities to give back to their community and learn leadership skills. For example, participants sell tickets to and serve guests at an annual pancake breakfast, which raises money for The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis’ global campaign to wipe out maternal and neonatal tetanus.
Started as a walking club to get participants to move more, MP Explorers also collect trash as they walk every week, helping to keep the city of Mission litter-free.
