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!
We have a place for everyone! Thank you to Pastor Nathan Hunter who volunteers with us and found himself changing the filters in one of our air-conditioning units on the roof!
Joann Roth was recently honored at Rescue Ministries Anniversary Dinner as the 2014 recipient of the Samaritan Award. Congratulations, Joann!
Each year, Rescue Ministries leadership considers all the volunteer efforts that have been observed. The Mission, being a volunteer driven organization, literally has hundreds of potential “Samaritans” demonstrating love to their neighbors. Some share clothing, some dress wounds, some provide transportation, some give money to pay for lodging, but all are interested in assisting the beaten and down-trodden. The universal characteristic among all Samaritan Award recipients is that they would be someone who you would appreciate as a neighbor.
Joann has been a faithful volunteer for most of the 9 1/2 years the Mission has been open. Working in the kitchen every Monday night, she is happy to be serving our guests. Joann, a member of Calvary Chapel in Bay City, has helped her church connect to the Mission in a very special way. Thank you, Joann!
Skills USA and other student groups at Bay-Arenac ISD Career Center held their annual food drive for Good Samaritan and gathered 2,517 items of food! Outstanding! And they got creative and arranged the food as seen in the picture. Do you know who this is?
