Salsa Mama is ON A MMMMMMMISSION!!!!

The simple mission: To serve the community with love, one pint of salsa at a time, by donating half of the profits from each sale to a local charity or family in need.

1 Peter 4:10 "As each one of us has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace."

Missions of Mercy UPDATE!

It is like opening a gift when I see the Missions of Mercy winners' emails come in. I am eager to share with you what the first three families have done!

First up, the LaPlante's! My dear friend Tillie and her family donated to Vaugn Trent Community Services. Her words here below:

Our family has decided to donate the $50 from your Mission of Mercy fundraiser to Vaughn-Trent Community Services.  This non-profit organization provides utility assistance for the needy in USD #204which encompasses Bonner Springs, Edwardsville, and a portion of Kansas City, KS.  The organization also operates a food pantry for low-income families and recently began providing fresh foods as well as the canned and boxed items in their pantry. At Christmas time, the organization gives out Christmas food baskets to needy families in the community.They also operate a thrift store, Hidden Treasures, in Bonner Springs which sells low cost clothing and other items with profits from the store helping to provide funding for the organization.

Thank you, Tillie, for drawing our attention to the many ways that Vaughn-Trent serves the community! Check out the links above for more information!

Next up, Mr. Tom Spalding and family....Oh, how heartwarming to get this picture of Mr. Robert Langford wearing his new Royals shirt purchased by your Salsa Mama donations! 

He didn't have a Royals shirt to wear as he rooted for the Royals as they headed toward World Series victory. Maybe this shirt was just what they needed to give them that EXTRA kick?? We'll never know....but the best news is that Robert was so happy to receive the gift and wore it proudly.  Mr. Langford is a resident of Golden Care Centers in Edwardsville, KS and is a weekly recipient of Holy Communion from Sacred Heart EMEs that visit the facility each Sunday.

The remainder of Tom's donation will go to Wanda Bibbs, director of Grace Center in Kansas City, KS. Wanda provides a home for unwed teenage mothers and also runs a daycare center for infants, toddlers as well as a before and after school program. 
As if this were not enough for one woman, Wanda has recently opened My Sisters Closet, a thrift store at 827 Minnesota Ave. in KCK. Wow! What an amazing woman, Wanda Bibbs! Please help spread the word about her work and/or send some prayers her way as she fulfills her calling to serve in this way. If you would like to donate items, the following are most needed:
Clothing for infants to adults, furniture and beds, appliances, household goods, but all items considered.

Thank you, Tom, for sharing this information with us and for all you do with Knights and in general to serve the community!!

Last but not least we have winner #3, Kathy Parks and family! If you click the link below you'll get an extra touching adorable little voice greeting when viewing the website. Love it :)
In Kathy's exact words:

We have decided to donate the $50 to Alexandra's House in Kansas City, MO.  
Alexandra’s House is a community based, all volunteer, peer-led perinatal hospice and infant care system for parents pregnant with babies with lethal or sub-lethal anomalies, for pregnancies that end unexpectedly at any point, from any cause, and for infants who die in the community, any cause. While its foundation is rooted in faith, its services offer a practical solution in meeting the time-intensive needs of families in these situations.

Alexandra’s House does not charge for its services nor does it accept contributions from people they serve.
Services include: bringing meaning to suffering, assistance in grief resolution, parent-parent partnering, birth planning, funeral planning, long-term support, one to one and group meetings, pre-natal and post-natal housing, if required. If a baby survives and is dismissed from the hospital, the family and baby can stay here for the duration of their life. Professional nursing services are provided through a licensed hospice agency.

Thank you Kathy for highlighting this ministry. I hope that you may find me to spend a few minutes on their website, and especially reading some of the inspirational stories . Yep, they're gonna make you cry, but the tears will be sorrow mixed with joy as you see the way Alexandra's House has provided comfort in the darkest of times. 

I know, I get it! We are all busy but if you've made it this far in the post, go ahead and click on some of these links. It takes, oh....about half a second to realize that this is time well spent! I am so over-the-moon grateful to be able to spread the word about each of these Missions of Mercy. More to come very soon!!
