The Springfield-Cape Girardeau schools and parish schools of Religion collected $39,077.21 for Eden Village with their Lenten Project. The JACS system raised $2,214.06 through dress down days during Lent as part of those funds. The Bishop presented the check to Dr. and Mrs. David Brown for the purchase of a home. The home will be delivered and decorated for new residents by the end of 2018.
Join us for a ribbon cutting on August 28, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Eden Village site. All are welcome to attend.
Based in Springfield, Missouri, Eden Village is an all-inclusive program to help the needs of the chronically disabled homeless. Its goal is to provide adequate housing and a sense of community with the emphasis on dignity, love, respect, abundance and acceptance for those who are homeless.
