The generosity of people, businesses, churches, and organizations at this time of year is such a humbling thing to witness. We can’t begin to express the gratitude we have for those of you who care about the homeless, during a time when sadness can shift the atmosphere and draw people away from the true JOY of CHRISTmas. Thank you Pastor Brad & Jodi Haist for stopping by with your annual gifts, to our new friends at Art Sample Home, to Josh at Major Games, and to Pastor William Brown and Mr. Morrison from Transforming Life Church Ministries, to name a few. May our guests feel the warmth and love of your giving this Christmas!
The Pioneers provided City Rescue Mission with 3, 293 lbs. of food for the homeless. The Pioneers, made up of AT&T employees, participate in “Feeding America” each year. The group has designated their food donation to the Mission for the past six years . The donation consisted of meat, 100% juices, fruit, rice, pancake mix and other dry goods. The Mission provided meals and shelter for 131 people this week so we thank AT&T for supporting this great need.
Recently, you, our online supporters, helped us to secure first place in the Independent Bank Community Builders Contest! With your votes, City Rescue Mission secured first place and Independent Bank donated $5,000 to the Rescue Ministries of Mid-Michigan! That being split between City Rescue Mission and Good Samaritan Rescue Mission, 2,500 nutritious meals were covered to feed the homeless in Mid-Michigan! Thank you again for your support!
