Friends and Partners of Hope Mission,
“… serving our community together…”
Here is how our “your partnership” with Hope Mission has served our community in the month of August.
- Served 3,194 meals to those who were hungry. As one person said while eating fried flounder provided by the Marine Fishers, “it’s the best meal I have eaten in months and it’s free.”
- Budgeted $3,600.00 helping those in need of emergency financial assistance for electric, housing, medical, etc. Thanks to the many churches, individual and business/civic groups that make this possible. Here is what one person said … “my electric is scheduled to be turned off and I don’t have the $320 to pay…” After verifying the need and checking with other agencies, Hope Mission worked together with agencies such as the Salvation Army, DSS, and Matthew 25, to pull the funds together, contacted the electric company and kept the electric on. That’s what we do week in and week out.
- Provided housing for 15 men in our homeless shelter. Most of them are working or in the process of finding work and are making a comeback in life. God is good all the time!
Thank you for your generosity and support for Hope Mission together we can make a difference.
