MARYVILLE, Mo. — A local group plans to welcome Northwest Missouri State University Bearcats back by hosting a barbecue.
WeGotchya! will host the barbecue from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 21 on the Hy-Vee patio in Maryville. Hamburger meals will cost $7 and hot dog meals will cost $6. All meals include a drink, chips and a cookie.
The group hold a regular dinner each third Wednesday of the month raising funds for its organizations cause, supporting menstruation-related issues in northwest Missouri and Williamson, Haiti, while breaking menstruation's taboo.
One dollar from each meal will be donated to WeGotchya! There also will be donation baskets on site for those who wish to supply products.
"We supply feminine products in schools, community partners and the Northwest Missouri State University Food Pantry," said Carolyn Johnson in a news release.
The group makes and supplies reusable, cotton menstrual pads to the House of Hope Haiti, an orphanage started by Maryville residents Bayo Joachim and Mike Bellamy.
