Walk a Mile in My Shoes has been an annual fundraiser in the Muncie community for over a decade. The purpose of the Walk is to take a step into the struggles facing our homeless and those in desperate situations. This community outreach also works to spread the purpose of the Muncie Mission.
May 4, 2017 – 12 noon – 1 pm
Please join us as we pray for ourselves, city, state and country.
2017 tournament date: June 1
Our annual golf tournament has been serving the Muncie community for 13 years. Proceeds go toward aiding those less fortunate in the East Central Indiana region. Additionally, this outreach also works to educate our community about Muncie Mission’s services.
2017 Tournament Summary
Thank you…if you were a sponsor, a player, donated funds/items or volunteered – you’re involvement helped make this year’s tournament very successful. A total of $37,373 was raised to help fund the Mission’s many life-changing programs/services and to help stock the food pantries.
Prior to the morning and afternoon flights, Andy, a Mission resident, shared how God had used his time at the Mission to help change and direct his life. He experienced God’s love first-hand, love that passes all understanding and he continues in that love as he works towards independent living. We praise God for his faithfulness.

On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving through #GivingTuesday.
Your donations make a difference – a story.
A woman came in this week after not visiting the food pantry for at least 2 years. She explained that her husband’s work situation had changed this month and they found themselves short of needed funds. She knew they could come to the Muncie Mission for food. This would help them to stretch their remaining food dollars and make dealing with the whole situation a little easier.
This year, the Muncie Mission has partnered with Meijer so that your #Giving Tuesday donation will be double matched through their Simply Give campaign to help Pack the Mission Pantry.
How can you help the Mission get the word out about November 28?
