Thanks to our donors and volunteers, Thanksgiving on Good Friday was a tremendous success. Nearly 2,000 homeless and needy men, women, and children were able to experience a very special time. Following the example of Jesus, volunteers washed the feet of those in attendance. Podiatry students from Barry University provided foot care services. Guests attending also received a purple MISSION HOPE bag filled with hygiene items and clothing.
Over 40 men and women came off the streets during the outreach.
Super thanks and much appreciation to our entire team that made Thanksgiving on Good Friday such a huge success.
Look at all that was accomplished and the thousands of lives that were impacted. People in great need experienced the love of God and of our communities. Your support touched so many lives!
“Today has been so special. Our team was washing the feet of people we never met, but they were so thankful. I feel so special. Thanksgiving on Good Friday was a very special time for me and my family. So many people were blessed and encouraged.”Vanessa, Volunteer
There was great food (entire Thanksgiving meal), entertainment, Easter Baskets, haircuts, children’s activities and so much more. A very special thank you to our wonderful volunteers, donors and supporters. Also, a shout out to WIOD including Jimmie Cefalo and Brian Mudd for helping in our special Share-A-Thon. It was a tremendous success. We can’t do all that we do without YOU!
“Thanksgiving on Good Friday is one of our four great outreaches to the homeless, poor, and needy during the year. You have to be present to really see the impact on people's lives. Our supporters are so special. Our goal is let people know througout the year that God and our communities care about them. It is an amazing demonstration of love.”Rev. Ronald Brummitt, President/CEO
Over 2,000 meals were served in Miami-Dade and Broward County!
