Community in Action – Through My Eyes Photo Contest

Missouri Valley Community Action Agency (MVCAA) is proud to present the Community in Action – Through My Eyes Photo Contest. The contest is an effort to capture and tell a visual story through photographic images. We ask that the photographer examine social and/or economic issues in their community through the lens of the camera such as poverty, empty buildings, no or broken sidewalks, homelessness, access for those individuals with a disability, quality of life, etc.

We hope you will join us for Project S.H.A.R.E. on August 8th at Marshall High School! Missouri Valley Community Action Agency and the Marshall Public School District have partnered together to bring this event to Saline County families and individuals to get connected with the resources they need! There will be numerous booths set up with information, education activities, and sign-ups for resources. There will also be medical services available on-site, such as vision and hearing screenings, dental services, immunizations, blood pressure checks, BMI evaluations, help with signing up for Medicaid/Medicare, and more. There will be nutrition activities for the kids, the smoke house from the Marshall Fire Dept., bus tours from the Marshall Public School Transportation Dept., and bike registration by the Marshall Police Dept. Parents of eligible students can receive school supplies and backpacks for their children at this event by contacting Lindsey Parton at the Marshall Public Schools Central Office at 660-886-7414 to sign up. Parents of eligible children also have the opportunity to get their child sized to receive a pair of school shoes, get a haircut on-site, and sign up for assistance with any other needs that will help their child be successful entering the new school year. Guests can also register with MVCAA for energy assistance or weatherization, if eligible. There are many more opportunities, as well. This will be a "one-stop-shop" for resources! The doors will be open from 10:00 am – 7:00 pm. You won’t want to miss it! For more information, or if you are interested in volunteering at this event, please feel free to contact:
