MRI highlights Midwest Mission Distribution Center (MMDC),, for their partnership.



For two consecutive years, MMDC has provided school kits and personal hygiene kits for our students valued at over $10,000 in supplies.  They are also gracious enough to drive 3 hours to deliver these items to us in the Chicago area.  Thank you MMDC!
