Plans are well under way for this summer’s ONE Project, a local effort organized through the Chillicothe Ministerial Alliance to spruce up the physical appearance of a local school. The goal of the ONE Project is to serve and support the Chillicothe schools by cleaning, painting, landscaping and addressing other needs identified by the school’s leadership. In the past five years, thousands of dollars and man-hours have been poured into the Chillicothe school buildings through the ONE Project. This year the ONE Project has the goal of investing $13,000 of materials into the Chillicothe Middle School. The largest expense and goal is to replace the carpeting in the library. The carpeting alone is just over $10,000. So far, more than $8,500 has been raised for this project. Pastor Rob Hurtgen from First Baptist, is one of many people working on this project. “The group this year has some big goals,” Hurtgen said. “It’s exciting that so far, 65 percent of the budget goal has been raised, but there’s still a long way to go. I know, though, that Chillicothe will rally behind the ONE Project and this budget goal will be met.” All the funds raised go directly to the ONE Project. Individuals, groups, businesses can be a part of the project on July 25 and by donating to the ONE Project. All tax-deductible donations can be mailed to: ONE Project, c/o The Chillicothe Ministerial Alliance, PO Box 1014, Chillicothe MO, 64601. For more information about the ONE Project you may contact Alan Brock, President of the Ministerial Alliance at 646 – 3578 or Pastor Hurtgen at 646 – 2834.
