Mrs. Nancy Safreed’s third grade class raised funds to help the Miami Rescue Mission provide meals this Thanksgiving holiday. They set a goal of $155.40 to help 75 people and raised over $161.00 which will feed 78 people!
The Miami Campus of the Miami Rescue Mission has served the homeless and needy since 1922. The administration offices, Center for Men, Center for Women and Children, Jeffrey A. Tew Education Center, Community Activity Center-which provides out-of-school and summer programs for children, Food Warehouse, Health Clinic, and Thrift Stores are located in a three block area off NW 1st Ave. and NW 20th Street. The Centers offer emergency and residential programs. An additional building houses 78 men and has a conference center. The combined Centers provide 390 beds for residential and emergency services.
The Miami Rescue Mission exists to help men, women, and children with meals, safe shelter, and life-changing residential programs resulting in transformed lives. Their passion is to follow the Lord Jesus Christ’s great commission by serving others.
What a blessing to have teachers who encourage our students to serve and to give to others.
