Beef Up the Mission

July 1, 2014

Beef Up the MissionEach July, a favorite annual event is “Beef Up the Mission”.  “Beef Up the Mission” started in 1989 with the help of WWKI Radio and White’s Meat Market and quickly became an annual event.  Around the area at local 4-H Livestock Auctions, donors and firends of the Kokomo Rescue Mission purchase Steers and Hogs, and then tell the auctioneer “Send it to the Mission!”  The beef and pork that comes from these 4-H animals is used throughout the year, to feed those in need in our community.  All of our “feeding programs” benefit from this project; the meat is used in our public Dining Room (Kokomo), at Open Arms, in Frankfort for the 2 meals per week provided through the Clinton County Ministry of Hope and LIFT as well as in grocery orders (Kokomo and Frankfort).

Through the 2014 Auctions 69 animals were “Sent to the Mission”.  On Thursday July 10, at the Howard County Auction, the Kokomo Rescue Mission received the “Reserve Grand Champion” steer and 48 hogs were donated.  On Friday July 18, at the Clinton County Fair 16 hogs were donated to the Mission. The Carrol County auction was also Friday July 18 and steer and three hogs was donated to the Mission.
