Summer has arrived in the Ozarks and many families are hitting the road. However, for some in our community, there’s no vacation from homelessness. This time of year can be a struggle for area agencies. The Kitchen, Inc. is no exception. Donations fall flat, but there’s still a need to provide emergency shelter and other housing options for the area’s homeless. Financial contributions to The Kitchen, Inc. are down $200,000.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Thieves stole a catalytic converter from The Kitchen, Inc.’s box truck this past weekend.
This is the fourth catalytic converter stolen from The Kitchen, Inc. in a little over a year. One was taken from the box truck in September 2019, another one from the company van this February, and third from the box truck this July.
The box truck is used to move clients into their new homes and transport donations. Deliveries and donation pickups will be halted until the truck is fixed.
