Creative Holiday Giving

Thanksgiving and Christmas are joyful times here at the Rescue Mission thanks to the regular stream of friends who make special efforts to care for the homeless and addicted.  Today we were grateful for a visit from our dear friend Mari Mender of Prudential California Realty who initiated a community drive for pillows and blankets.  We are in constant need of these items, and we’re so glad that our guests will feel the love when the put their heads down on a brand-new pillow.

Many thanks to Mari, Sable Layman, Mission Linen, K-Mart, and everyone else who took part!  If your family, friends, office or church would like to join in the fun, please contact Rebecca Weber at
