Color Run Update
We held our Uplift Color Run on October 21, 2023, and we are thrilled to share some of its exciting successes! There were 92 individuals registered, 10 church partners represented, 30 sponsors lending their support, and over 300 volunteer hours logged, all while raising an impressive $8,368.84! God blessed us with a stunning fall day, graced us with ideal weather, and made it a truly memorable event!
This fantastic show of support from our community is a testament to the power of unity and the impact we can make when we come together. We want to thank everyone who participated, sponsored, volunteered, and prayed for the success of this event as we continue together on our journey to uplift and support our community.

What’s Ahead for Uplift Mid-MO
Uplift has experienced significant growth. We are excited to announce that we will be partnering with Flipcause in 2023, which will include a complete redesign of our web properties and a new recordkeeping system for our fundraising efforts.
We anticipate doing some new things in 2024 with fundraising. We are in search of individuals who have seen the value of Uplift Mid-MO and would be willing to share some short testimony of how it has impacted you or your church. We will be developing a series of short videos to share with our church partners and promote on social media as a part of our 2024 fundraising efforts. If you or someone you know is interested in participating in this, please contact Kate Shaw at email@example.com. We’d appreciate your support!
Uplift Mid-MO Q3 Activity Report:
Clients referred – 63 Financial Assistance Offered – $3,910.34 for 14 various services
Intakes – 16 8 housing payments
Open Cases – 6 1 payment for sewer and water
1 payment for transportation
2 payments for supplies for home startup
2 referrals for counseling
There continues to be an increase in referrals to Uplift Mid-Mo. As you can see, not every referral becomes an open case – there are many reasons for this, including lack of contact information, resource information only provided, and duplicate submissions, but often due to the evaluation process for each referral. Uplift strives to be a “gap ministry”(assisting when the criteria of other agencies can’t be met), we evaluate the ability of the assistance Uplift offers to assist in the sustainability of the individual’s independence, and we are faith-based and faith supported by our church partners. The mission of Uplift Mid-Mo is to create unity in the body of Christ by supporting local missions and outreach in Audrain County by providing valuable resources to those in need and effectively lead the lost to Jesus Christ. This is the ultimate goal of Uplift Mid-MO with your support.
