The day Scott* came through the Mission doors, he was hungry and homeless. He had been aimlessly walking our city streets. He stopped in front of the Mission for a long while, agonizing about coming inside . . .
“I knew DRMM existed, but I never thought I would have to utilize it,” Scott says, remembering the pain of his hunger.
His first meal was deeply appreciated. But what came next truly changed Scott’s life . . .
We gave him safe shelter as we helped him beat addiction and find work. Then, we helped him go back to school and learn a trade so he could regain independence.
“DRMM saved me,” Scott says. “They gave me a safe haven, a roof over my head. I started volunteering so I could help others like they helped me.”
This Thanksgiving, Scott will be giving thanks for people like you who support the Mission because he knows you are the reason—
He’s off the streets and no longer hungry.
He’s working and living independently.
He has hope in his heart and can now help others in need.
I am grateful to God—and you—for Scott’s saved and changed life, but more people are turning to the Mission for help at this time than ever before.
This year, DRMM will serve over 225,000 meals for desperate people coming through the Mission doors, hoping for a good, hot meal. Your gift of meals becomes a gift of hope to so many like Scott.
Please make a generous gift now because every $1.95 you give will provide a delicious holiday meal for someone in our community who is facing hunger, homelessness, and joblessness and has nowhere else to turn. Thank you for helping our neighbors in need!GIVE NOW
