Beef Up the Mission! - July 2013
July is the time of year when most of us are enjoying the warm weather of summer. It is also time of the year that countless faithful donors help support the Kokomo Rescue Mission at area County 4-H Fairs by purchasing steers and hogs at the livestock auction. Those donors then announce to the auctioneers "Send it to the Mission" - which is like music to the ear. The meat from the donored livestock helps the Mission stock it's freezer for the upcoming year.
