Community Missions to Celebrate 90th Anniversary with Community Block Party July 11by Christian Hoffman
For nine decades, Community Missions has dedicated itself to providing necessary services to those in need in the Niagara region. In honor of its 90th anniversary, Community Missions is inviting the community to celebrate with a Community Block Party, to take place on Saturday, July 11 from Noon-4:00 p.m. at the Mission (1590 Buffalo Ave., Niagara Falls).
Activities available to children will include face painting, carnival games, and an inflatable slide. In addition, live music, a health and wellness fair, flea market, and 50/50 raffle will take place. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase a chance to win prizes through Community Missions' Annual Duck Race, held at the Canal Fest of the Tonawandas. Food will be provided at no charge and the event is free and open to the public.
Donations of items such as toiletries, food, and clothing will be accepted during the event and are greatly appreciated. For more information or for volunteer opportunities please contact Julie Whittemore at email@example.com or 716-285-3403 ext. 2293.
