The MISSON:POSSIBLE blueprint is spreading to other cities, as Dallas Life Mission in Texas celebrated their second turkey fry and Louisville Rescue Mission in Kentucky held their first turkey fry and concert on Wednesday of last week.  Both cities reported successful and safe events. Additional cities are slated to come on board in 2018, as the new 501-C3 gains momentum across the U.S.
