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. The event will take place from noon until 4 p.m. Saturday, July 11, at Community Missions, 1590 Buffalo Ave., Niagara Falls.
Activities available to children will include face-painting, carnival games and an inflatable slide. In addition, the event includes live music, a health and wellness fair, a flea market and 50/50 raffle. Guests will 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, contact Julie Whittemore at [email protected] or 716-285-3403, ext. 2293.
