UPCI Youth Ministries President Josh Carson referenced the Lord’s Prayer as recorded in Matthew 6:

“Jesus told us to pray that His kingdom would come and His will would be done on earth,” he said.

“That means we are called to serve the needs of others, particularly when they are suffering through a crisis.”

"We work with corporations all across the country to get cleaning supplies and personal care items," he said.

"We also look to get the products to help a child as they go back to school after being impacted by a disaster," said Feed the Children's John Ricketts.

"We're going to be filling 2,000 buckets for disaster recovery, which in times of disaster, will be distributed and put together at this location," Superintendent Missouri Division UPCI Bryan Parkey told television station KTVI.

Some of those affected were victims of the floods that recently hit the Midwest.

Those who attended also donated more than $1 million to Sheaves For Christ the fundraising arm of UPCI.
