Neither Pandemic Nor Snowmageddon Can Stop MVC Spirit Week!

For 31 years, Mingo Valley Christian students have participated in an annual school-wide food drive called Spirit Week, in which they bring tons (literally!) of food for John 3:16 Mission, which provides food, clothing, and shelter for thousands of economically disadvantaged families in the Tulsa area. This year, their 31st year of Spirit Week, the 325 students of Mingo Valley Christian brought a total of 14,458 pounds of food donations!
To make the week extra fun, grades compete against each other by bringing food, wearing costumes, memorizing Bible verses, and celebrating with daily assemblies. Daily assemblies had to be completely reformatted this year to honor COVID protocols, but the school found a safe way to accomplish this that didn’t dampen the fun a bit! 
This annual event regularly makes Mingo Valley Christian the largest single provider for the John 3:16 Mission’s Food Bank. Rev. Steven Whitaker, President and CEO of John 3:16 Mission, expresses gratitude for Mingo Valley’s help, stating: “Year after year, Mingo Valley has been the single largest donor of food to John 3:16 Mission. Their gift means that thousands of hungry and homeless people – our neighbors right here in Tulsa – don’t have to miss a meal. Mingo Valley’s students, staff, and parents truly epitomize the spirit of Christian giving.”
