A kitchen that feeds the homeless population in Joplin is looking to make some updates and improvements.
The kitchen at Souls Harbor is 20 years old and it's age is starting to show.
The staff says the leaky sink, not having a dishwasher, fridge or pantry inside the kitchen makes things difficult to make breakfast and dinner efficiently.
The shelter manager says they have hired an architect who has designed renovation plans that include things like a dishwasher, fridge and pantry space, all for a price of $30,000.
They are asking for residents help to raise the funds for the improvements.
"It goes to a good cause - people that don't have anything that are down on their luck and want a different way of life and trying to help themselves," says Cletis Roland of Souls Harbor. "It's put to good use."
A third of the money has already been raised.
Donations will be accepted at the Souls Harbor donation center.
