Led by efforts of the SCL Mission Team, employees of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth respond year-round to calls to assist persons in need. Most recently the group collected packages of spaghetti and jars of sauce to donate to the free community meal served by Sisters and volunteers the third Thursday of each month at St. Joseph Church. In January, the Mission Team spearheaded a service day on Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Sisters and staff gathered that day to stuff hygiene kits for distribution world-wide by Heart to Heart International. In the past, the team has sponsored a canned goods drive.
