Edward had just one word to describe the misery he’d endured for two solid years, after losing his job and not finding another one—
Homelessness came more quickly than he could ever have imagined . . . and with it came sleeping in cars and vacant buildings. Scrounging for food. Suffering through bitter cold days and nights.
On top of all that he felt crippling fear and shame. Every day.
Support from a friend like YOU made sure Edward got a good, hot meal—and the hope for a new beginning he so desperately needed.
This Thanksgiving, I ask you to open your heart and give that same hope to other hungry, hurting people who will come through the Mission doors seeking a fresh start—one that begins with a good, hot meal.
Every $1.95 you give now will provide a delicious holiday meal with extra servings of life-changing help and lifesaving hope! Edward would be the first to tell you that it’s true—the simple kindness of a meal provided by a friend like you changed everything for him . . .
Because he learned that day that people like you really care.
This Thanksgiving, Edward will give thanks for big hearts like yours. He says, “If not for DRMM, I don’t know where I’d be,” Edward says. “This is the best organization. The whole program really works.”
But our job isn’t over yet, because more people like Edward are coming through the doors every day. In fact, in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, we will serve over 135,000 meals to neighbors in great need!
On behalf of people in your community who are lost and broken, battling homelessness, joblessness, or addiction, I sincerely thank you for making this a Thanksgiving filled with help, hope, and new beginnings.Provide Thanksgiving Meals
