Coldwater, Lee’s Summit’s Nonprofit of the Year for 2018, is excited to announce a new season of Building Friendships and Fostering Hope. Coldwater is growing and ready to expand. As Coldwater makes plans to expand, it has found hope through its own friendship with New Springs Community Church.

In late summer 2019, Coldwater will move onto the campus of New Springs Community Church which is located at 1800 NE Independence Ave. in Lee’s Summit.

Corey McDonald, pastor of New Springs Church is looking forward to the partnership. “We are excited about this partnership with Coldwater because our missions intertwine. Our goal as a church is to serve and care for those who are hurting, suffering, and have lost hope in the community; partnering with Coldwater extends those opportunities for NSCC,” McDonald shares. Coldwater and New Springs will be busy transforming the existing 16 acres into a campus of caring for those in the community facing struggles. New Springs Church will continue to grow its existing free medical clinic while offering all of its existing services.

Coldwater will continue to offer its current services, some of which include a food pantry, clothes closet, Harvesters’ BackSnacks to elementary schools in Lee’s Summit, No Hungry Kids! Packs, and Summer Lunches and BBQs in two local neighborhoods.

Coldwater’s plans for the campus include, ultimately, a 10,000 square foot facility. The immediate goal of Coldwater is to construct phase one of that building which will be approximately 1,400 square feet. The projected cost of phase one is $300,000. To this point Coldwater has raised $50,000 for the construction of phase one.

Coldwater is asking the Lee’s Summit community to participate in Coldwater’s growth, allowing it to continue building friendships.
