CITY RESCUE MISSION

Ruby's Story


Every year, hundreds of families receive a Thanksgiving Basket from the Mission. These baskets are filled with all the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving meal to be prepared and enjoyed with loved ones in the comfort of their home. This outreach makes a huge impact on the lives of struggling people like Ruby during the holiday season. Ruby and her husband have been coming to the Mission for food assistance for many years. “We have a large family that we care for. Money has always been tight. Thankfully, the Mission is always ready to help,” she shares.

 

The holidays can be especially difficult for Ruby and her family. Thankfully, preparing a Thanksgiving meal is one less thing to worry about. “I love the Thanksgiving Baskets! I always feel overjoyed to take one home and prepare a meal for our family. It makes the holiday more special.”

"Thank you to all the generous donors who help make the holiday special"

This holiday season is an opportunity for our hungry and hurting neighbors to discover they are never forgotten. As guests receive a bag of groceries or a Thanksgiving Basket, they are receiving hope and faith that Jesus loves them and they are never alone.


“My family and I are so thankful for all of the assistance we receive here. I know we are all fed because of generous donors who give to the Mission. It’s incredible to see how so many people come together in one accord to care for those in need,” shares Ruby.  To learn how you can help during Thanksgiving please click here.
