When the big snow storm on the east coast caused the annual March for Life in Washington DC to be canceled, it left a lot of people with canceled plans. And it left Nouvel High School wondering what to do with all of the sack lunches they had prepared for their student bus trip. A school who already ‘gives back to the community’ very well, quickly decided to donate the food that may have otherwise gone bad. Rescue Ministries of Mid-Michigan was a fortunate recipient of the food. Thank you so much for your thoughtful generosity! Our guests at both Good Samaritan Rescue Mission of Bay City and City Rescue Mission of Saginaw enjoyed the lunches over the weekend. See the complete MLive article with pictures. #Saginaw#R3MMinistries
We are so grateful for local businesses and their teams who come alongside our fundraising projects to help the homeless. Together we have success! Thank you, especially to our local orchards and these businesses:
A big thank you to the AT&T Pioneers who donated 30 book bags, full of the necessary school supplies for children and teens at City Rescue Mission. Every year the Pioneers generously remember students who are temporarily living at our Mission shelter. Your thoughtfulness makes a huge impact! Thank you! #Saginaw
When Renee Gerulski had to close her exercise business and start, over she didn’t realize how much her volunteerism at City Rescue Mission would fit perfect in to the plan. Renee who attends Old Town Christian Center in Saginaw is a Zumba instructor and exercise trainer, and also a Chapel volunteer at the Mission. Each Tuesday, Renee and three other women minister the Gospel to the women and children in emergency shelter. Renee offers “Mission Fitness” to families temporarily living at City Rescue Mission twice a month as a thank you to God for His faithfulness to restore her business. Renee’s story was featured in the Midland Daily News where her new business is located. We thank God for faithful volunteers like Renee who literally, bend over backwards to help those in need.

The Saturday Traveling Golfer’s Club came to City Rescue Mission to present a $1,000 check when it’s needed most. The Summer months put a strain on the budget due to shelters being full, even more so than winter months. “That surprises most people, but it’s true and we so appreciate a large gift like this to help us through”, states Dan Streeter. Frank Webb (2nd from L) leads the group of golfers and has come to be a great partner with us. The men travel to a different course each time they golf which is where they get their name. After many years of golfing together they decided they wanted to give back to their community. City Rescue Mission is one of several non-profit charities that they support and we thank them for choosing us!
