During and after the tragedy of 9/11, first responders in NYC worked tirelessly to save lives and help all people who were affected. In memory of the events of 9/11, the AmeriCorps VISTAs of Minority/Underserved Outreach put together a project to give back and pay tribute to the men and women who make a difference in people’s lives in Sedalia every day by putting their lives on the line in the case of an emergency.
The VISTAs delivered gift bags with an assortment of goods, including items for personal hygiene, snacks, candy and cards to the locations of city and county Firefighters, Police, EMTs, and the Sheriff’s office. The VISTAs would like to thank the First Christian church, Amigos de Cristo, and the Salvation Army for contributing donations and volunteers in order to put the care packages together. Most of all, the VISTAs would like to thank the First Responders for keeping the city safe.
