Kingdom Projects begins community outreach

Kingdom Projects begins community outreach

Seeks more exposure for recycling, workshop services through rebranding

November 3rd, 2013 in News

Workers at Kingdom Projects help sort and process recycled cardboard and paper at their recycling plant, 2611 North Bluff St. The sheltered workshop, which provides jobs in recycling, packaging, assembly and more, is working to rebrand itself and raise awareness among the public in Callaway County to its services.

People who drive by the seemingly unassuming storefront at 2611 North Bluff St. might not realize there is a resale shop - much less an 18,645 square-foot recycling facility - tucked away behind a row of trees and telephone poles.

That's an image Kingdom Projects, Inc. (KPI) board member Allan Ensor wants to break.

"We've been in the community since 1976, and a lot of people still don't know who we are, where we're at and what we do," he said. "Nowadays, most people don't know what a sheltered workshop is. We're making the community aware again of the services KPI provides to the community and individuals who work here."

KPI is launching a "rebirthing," including a new logo, better visibility from the road and a stronger emphasis on community outreach to make sure people in Fulton and Callaway County know what Kingdom Projects does.
