August Monthly Mission
City Mission is a Christ-centered rehabilitative homeless shelter. They facilitate the transformation of those who have descended into homelessness, hunger and despair by providing food, shelter, case management, Christian based counseling, and life-changing programming. Their goal is to help each person who walks through our doors to become a healthy, productive member of society. The City Mission offers two branches of service - Compassionate Care and our Life Recovery Program. Compassionate Care reaches out to those most in need by offering basic services such as meals, shelter, and medical care. The Life Recovery Program assists men, women, and children who are in crisis and looking for life transformation. Their philosophy is to meet people where they are and to lead them towards their God-given purpose.
What can we do to help:
- Donate money – can be placed in the basket at church or mailed to church
- Donate Clothes or Household Good at any of the local hidden treasures thrift stores in Monongahela, North Strabane, or Canonsburg
- Donate nonperishable items to the Thomas Food Drive
For the last few years Thomas has held a food drive to help City Mission refill their Samaritan’s Purse Food Bank. This year families are more in need than in the past and Thomas has always been willing to step up for City Mission. We will be having a non-perishable food drive during August. Drop off locations are located inside the CLC (you will see a marked table) or on the covered porch by on the fellowship hall entrance.
