(Shoshoni, WY) – On January 25th, several care boxes were given to the Shoshoni Senior Citizens Center as part of Iglesia Ni Cristo’s ‘Aid to Humanity’ initiative.
In attendance, were local members of Iglesia Ni Cristo, community members and accepting the care boxes on behalf of the center – Shoshoni Senior Citizen Center Director Michelle Shepard, their Board Chair Ken Cundall, and Shoshoni Mayor Joel Highsmith.
The worldwide church organization Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ), which is headquartered in the Philippines, purchased the mushroom farm in Shoshoni last year for their first eco-farming outreach project in the United States.
This past fall, they held their first ‘Aid to Humanity’ project and provided Chromebooks, gift cards, and food to community members in need.
The care boxes for the senior citizens include items such as blankets, socks, scarves, and food. Michelle, Ken, and Joel all shared their appreciation for the care packages.
According to Joel, they are also donating time and equipment to complete some necessary dirt work at the Shoshoni Gun Range. Care boxes will also be available for community members at the Town Council Meeting tonight.
