You make a profound difference for local homeless men, women and children when you support Old Savannah City Mission. Your faithfulness has been a powerful investment in their lives.
We treat the whole person here - addressing not only the practical needs of food and shelter, but more importantly, the root issues of homelessness, which are often spiritual. (That way people receive the resources they need, and with God's help, get off the streets permanently.)
And, as a Christian nonprofit, we're 100% committed to stretching your donations beyond what you would ever think possible.
Thanks to you, we are able to. . .
Provide a complete, nourishing meal at the Mission for only $2.05. Even most fast food 'value meals" are over $5.00 (to say nothing of the dubious nutritious value).
Give a night of shelter for only $17.20. Compare that to a cheap motel, which often exceeds $75 per night. Or prison, where the average cost exceeds $85 per day.
Distribute gently worn clothes for pennies on the dollar of what they'd cost at value or department stores.
And offer other life-transforming resources - like counseling, work programs, addiction recovery classes and more . . . all provided for a fraction of what they'd normally cost.
Life on the streets is incredibly desperate and difficult, so I hope you will continue your faithful prayers and support of our work.
You are showing mercy to people who cannot provide for themselves.
When it comes to restoring broken lives and getting people off the streets. there is no better investment - and no better value for your money - than a gift to the Mission.
With gratitude, William Stiles, Sr. Executive Director
Often a hot meal is the first step toward a changed life.
