a Great Success!

Foot care by Barry Universitry

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.

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

Our goal was to provide 10,000 meals and we ended with nearly 16,000 meals to be served this Spring to hurting and hungry people. We are also grateful for the matching funds generously provided which will double the amount of meals to 32,000. Our Centers in Miami and Broward will serve nearly 200,000 meals this Spring.
