CITY RESCUE MISSION

Grace's Story


Providing food for herself and her son was a constant struggle for Grace. Desperate times led to skipping meals, splitting portions and doing whatever she could to make what little money she had go further. Then someone told her about the Mission’s Family Care Ministry.The Family Care Ministry provides grocery assistance and additional care to families in need. Grace was moved by the kindness she received from compassionate staff when she called for help to feed her family. “They let you know that you’re not alone. You have a friend at the Mission,” she shared.

 

Now when money gets tight and Grace struggles to make ends meet, she has a place to turn to for help. But the assistance goes beyond a bag of food for the month. “I’m especially thankful for Thanksgiving Baskets! They make the holiday special.”

 

"You have a friend at the Mission"

Each year, hundreds of families, like Grace’s, receive a Thanksgiving Basket from the Mission. The baskets are filled with traditional Thanksgiving food, such as mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing mix, pumpkin pie mix and veggies. Providing families with the means to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving meal for their family gives them a day full of celebration instead of hunger and worry.
