Beef Up the Mission
July 16, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Each 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 friends 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”. Last year, at the Howard County Auction, the Kokomo Rescue Mission received the “Reserve Grand Champion” steer and 48 hogs were donated. At the Clinton County Fair, last year, 16 hogs were donated to the Mission. The Carrol County 2014 auction brought in a steer and three hogs for the Mission.
