Time is Running Out! Please Help our Homeless Children!
We need to raise money for our homeless children! Every August the Recue Mission Youth Program takes our homeless teens on a Mission Trip to teach them philanthropy, serving cross culturally, and to learn a regular work schedule. Last year our Mission Trip was in Montana and included building a mudroom (entry way), picking up thousands of rocks, and painting a garage for a Native American family in the area.
What We Do:
While the trip is geared toward teaching teens teamwork and building job skills, we also emphasize that our teen clients are valued and that the work we do at the Rescue Mission is give and take among clients and staff. Our objective is to teach them that they have a lot to give by serving in their community, and by staying involved in community outreach programs even after they leave our facilities, they will continue to help us in joining the fight against homelessness as they become adults.
How You Can Help:
You can help our homeless teens build positive self-esteem and learn a lot about what they have to offer the community, by helping us raise money for our Mission Trip through providing gifts for us to auction off at our annual Mission Trip auction to be held March 25th at the Trinity Church in Tacoma.
What We Need:
- Gift baskets
- Gift cards
- Small auction items
- Vacation/timeshare packages
- Dinner cruises
- You can also offer your services for auction (i.e. one donor is a massage therapist).
- Concert tickets or event passes.
- Other items you think will help us meet our goals to raise the money we need.
Please help! Not only do your donations help us provide important services to low-income families, it also teaches our homeless teens to become self-sufficient. It gives them an opportunity to know that they are loved, and can make a big impact on building a better community.
