Thankful for YOU this holiday season. See why!

How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was abundant in love and Thanksgiving turkey. It was a powerful reminder to thank God for people like you who care deeply for our homeless neighbors.

More than 1,500 men, women, and children came through our doors and filled our dining rooms on Thanksgiving Day!

Thank you for helping our neighbors like Dean, who've lost so much find a meal and hope for new life this Thanksgiving season!

Once homeless, Dean now oversees all the kitchens and food service operations at the Mission. “There are times in the kitchen I just cry. I know what the guys in line are feeling. It’s amazing what a simple meal can do for a person when they’re hungry,” says Dean.

We welcomed and embraced our homeless neighbors and families in need by serving Thanksgiving meals and providing food boxes with 1,975 donated turkeys.

It was no surprise that the 100 handcrafted pumpkin pies baked by University Prep students barely made it through the end of our Thanksgiving gatherings!

I'm so thankful for how God uses the Mission and simple moments to change entire lives this holiday season.

 

Now, are you ready to score some good deals today? I confess I'm not one to wake up early for Black Friday deals. But, I do love this time of year when we give Christmas gifts to bring joy to others. I'm up early this morning to give thanks and support a movement that's close to my heart...

#GivingTuesday.

It kicks off today, starting with a $60,000 Matching Grant! Shop our Christmas Gift Catalog — now through #GivingTuesday — and your gift will be DOUBLED to help 2x as many overcome homelessness and addiction.

Again, from all of us, thank you for your generous heart to love and care for men, women, and children who don't have anywhere to go this holiday season.
