William Jewell College is partnering with more than thirty Kansas City churches and schools to paint homes and complete home repair projects this summer in the city’s urban core.

The partnership is called the Matthew 25 Project. Volunteers will work together on four sites Monday through Thursday, June 22 to 25, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, June 26, is reserved as a makeup rain day if needed. All the work sites are in the Palestine neighborhood. A cookout and celebration will be held at the Palestine Neighborhood Development Center at noon on Friday, June 26th. (3449 Indiana Ave, KCMO 64128)

“The mission of the Matthew 25 Project is to provide a transforming, cross cultural experience for schools and religious groups as they work to improve housing for residents in Kansas City’s urban core,” said Jeff Buscher, project coordinator and campus minister at William Jewell. The Palestine Neighborhood Association selected the work sites and the city of Kansas City pre-qualified homes to receive the work through their ongoing “Paint Program.”
