- Savannah Area 2015 Hunger Fund -
Dear Friends of the Mission,
Most people in Savannah don't talk about hunger because they don't
see it. Homeless people aren't out on Main Street. They're hidden in
alleys, under bridges, out of the way.
But I'm so grateful you see what others don't. Your support for Old
Savannah City Mission is a blessing.
We just launched the Savannah Area 2015 Hunger Fund and thought
you should know. Our goal is to significantly reduce hunger in our
|I hope I can Count on you again, because we need to
provide the area's homeless men, women and children
with nutritious meals in the days to come. To meet this
goal we must raise the funds needed by April 30th.
Every $2.05 you give provides a hearty meal at the Mission to a
homeless person in our community. Your support helps replenish our
kitchen, which endures tremendous wear and tear every day with so
many people coming in. Plus, you help provide shelter, clothing, and
many other recovery services.
Please open your heart again and send your gift of $16.40, $20.50,
$30.75 or whatever is right for you today. You will fill empty stomachs
and comfort suffering people.

This donation continues the mission of the Girl Scouts which was
founded in 1912 in Savannah by Juliette Gordon Low by helping girls to
“develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing
understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions
and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute
to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills,
and cooperation with others”. The donation will be used in our feeding
program that serves over 5,000 homeless and hungry people monthly.

2015 Campaign for Homeless Veterans
Show a veteran you care!
Dear Friends and supporters,
Next time you see a homeless person in Savannah, please consider
Roughly one out of every eight people on the street is a veteran.
There is a good chance he or she sacrificed the best years of their
life defending your freedom and mine... and it may have cost them more
than most people can imagine. Many of these forgotten heroes remain
so haunted by the horrors of the battlefield, they all but lost their ability to
cope with life.
That's why I'm writing to tell you how Old Savannah City Mission is
reaching out in grateful support to America's homeless veterans living
right here in our community. I believe it is our responsibility to provide
food, shelter, recovery services and spiritual nourishment for as long
as it takes to get these soldiers back on their feet.
Consider the story of one decorated veteran I'll call"Tony." He served
in the Navy during the first Gulf War and gave 10 years of his life to his
country. "I got an honorable discharge with awards and medals and
pins," Tony recalls.
Sadly the strain of military life and constantly being on the move took
a toll on Tony's life. After a third failed marriage, he was left homeless
and without a car. That's when he started drinking his days away.
After years of struggling with his addiction, Tony came to the Mission,
where he discovered freedom from alcohol, as well as love,
encouragement, and help putting together a solid resume. He is now
actively searching for work, has lined up a place of his own, and is ready
to strike out full of hope.
"The Mission wants you to leave here knowing about life and about
God so you can be out there in the world and function," he says.
We are seeing more and more veterans like Tony who urgently need
assistance. That is why your support today is so important.
Thank you and God bless you,
William Stiles, Sr., Executive Director
P.S. Supporting our troops doesn't stop when they come home safely.
Please give your generous gift to help us provide food, shelter, and
spiritual nourishment to America's veterans in need.
