Mission Central Needs a new Mower!

$2,140 of $7,000 goal

Spring is quickly coming and Mission Central needs your help!  We are in need of a new mower for our property.

Our current mower is residential grade and was donated to us over 11 years ago (it was used when we received it).  In addition to needing maintenance, it is just not sufficient for the 3 acres of very rough ground that we maintain.  Our volunteers really struggle with this task using our current equipment.  

We have found a wonderful local dealer, who has the commercial grade mower we need listed at $8,299.  We have done the research and this is the right equipment for the job.  They will knock $1,500 off the retail price and sell us this mower for only $6,799.  While this is a great value, unfortunately, that money is just not available in our budget.

We try to keep our budget and all available resources focused on mission work, but the reality is that we have to maintain our own building and property.  

If everyone who reads this gives even $5, this goal will quickly be met!  Working together, we can accomplish great things.  Prayerfully consider how you can help!

Thank you to everyone who supported Mission Central!

Counting several pledged donations, we've now reached our goal of $7,000 and are purchasing the new mower...just in time for the first day of Spring! We have faith that the pledges will be arriving shortly.

We understand that there may be a few donations on the way that have not yet been received. Please be assured that those donations earmarked for the mower will be used for their intended purpose. There are always unaccounted costs with a purchase of this nature and even beyond the purchase, we'll need money for things like fuel and maintenance. We are also about to dedicate our refurbished "Peace Garden" and will need top soil, grass seed, etc..

If you would still like to make a donation, but wish to support something other than the mower, please allow it to go towards our general operating costs. These are the funds needed to operate the warehouse on a daily basis, allowing us all to continue the "mission" of
Mission Central.

Once again, we thank you all for making this happen.
We'll be sure to post some pictures of our volunteers with the new mower as soon as the grass cutting begins!
