Not all of you are local, but for those of you who are, listen up!
The Orange County Rescue Mission came on my radar years ago when I was working as a consultant. The President of our company, a wonderful man that I was so blessed to know, was very involved with the Mission both personally and professionally. His investment encouraged me to take notice of their work. More recently, the OC Rescue Mission has impacted someone in my own circle. The hope, opportunity and fresh start they have facilitated is a game-changing gift.
The OC Rescue Mission is home to 88 boys and girls who live with their parents at the Rescue Mission. These are kids who have been through rough waters and know hardship. Yet, they’re still kids and have hopes and wishes for the Holiday Season. The OC Rescue Mission relies on support from the community to provide a memorable Christmas for these kids.
If you are in the Orange County area and would like to support the OC Rescue Mission, there are a few ways to get involved:
- Celebrate Christmas at the Magic at the Mission party on December 13th at 9am
- Donate clothes, food or gifts – check out the urgent needs list and then drop items at the warehouse.
- Make a cash donation – right now there is a matching grant that doubles the donation
- Volunteer at the Mission – check out the available volunteer opportunities here. You can tutor, help out with admin needs and even sponsor a monthly birthday celebration.
