Mark your calendars for 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 7 when Circles of McPherson County will run a Poverty Simulation. This will be an incredible learning experience. The event will be held in Hess Hall, First United Methodist Church. Everyone is welcome.
Have you thought about becoming an Ally to a Circles family as they journey out of poverty? Do you know someone who would make a great Ally? Or do you or a friend work in a profession where you often interface with families living in poverty? Do you have questions about why it is so hard for families to escape the cycle? There is no cost to participate and this is a perfect tool to bring insight to the maze that families in poverty face daily. Eighty-eight slots are available. Call 241-9011 to reserve your spot.
