Excel Commons of Okolona has been a supporter of Mission Okolona for years

Updated: Jul 21, 2020

Excel Commons Family Community Center is the heart of Main Street in Okolona. What began as a summer youth program in three borrowed classrooms in 1988, has turned a former department store into the community hub.

To call the Sisters of Excel Commons, S. Elizabeth Brown, S. Nancy Schreck, and S. Jean Meyer working together with the dedicated staffers and volunteers who serve Excel friends of our food pantry doesn't do them justice. They are our family! Although I've only been volunteering at Mission Okolona for a couple of years and been a board member for little over year, I like the whole town of Okolona I'm certain have witnessed how dedicated the mission of Excel is to the success of Mission Okolona.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic

From donating food to providing us college student volunteers to even inviting us to use their facility to store cold storage food as their facility has been close due to the pandemic, the Excel Common family's help was only a phone call away.

Every layout comes with the latest social features built in. Readers will be able to easily share posts on social networks like Facebook and Twitter, view how many people have liked a post, made comments and more. With the Wix, building your online community has never been easier.

A Pillar of Support in Okolona

Children’s enrichment, senior wellness and GED certification classes are the core of Excel’s programs, while a community gym,computer lab and commons room are open to all in need. Excel Commons also includes a resale shop, coffee shop and volunteer center.

Excel is led by Executive Director Sister Elizabeth Brown, CSJ, working together with the dedicated staffers and volunteers who provide support in a family environment.

Services are also offered at our satellite locations in Calhoun City and Morton.
