Volunteer generosity and energy have been the pulse setting the tempo for every Thanksgiving Day serve at the Mission since 1944. For years, hundreds of families have taken time out of their holiday gatherings to help serve men, women and children in our community, and this year was no exception. In fact, this Thanksgiving will be remembered as one of the most spirited ever given the countless obstacles that had to be overcome to ensure its success.
Hurricane Delta might have dumped a healthy amount of rain during the Mission’s inaugural Rescue Run on Saturday, but the storm could do little to dampen the spirits of the participants and staff involved.
The Mission’s annual Holiday Placemat Coloring project officially kicks off October 1 every year. These hand-colored placemats are collected and displayed in the dining halls at the downtown men’s center, Jessie’s Place, and Royal Pines.
Mark’s “God encounter” at Royal Pines anchored his Methadone addiction recovery, Arby’s blessed children at Jessie’s Place through a generous grant, and the Mission officially launches an incredible new podcast!! Read more in this month’s newsletter.
Caitlin is finding hope for tomorrow at Jessies Place, Active Recovery is exploding and men are being mentored at our men’s center, and the generosity of our donors continues to move us in powerful ways! Read more in this month’s newsletter.
