Joann Roth was recently honored at Rescue Ministries Anniversary Dinner as the 2014 recipient of the Samaritan Award. Congratulations, Joann!
Each year, Rescue Ministries leadership considers all the volunteer efforts that have been observed. The Mission, being a volunteer driven organization, literally has hundreds of potential “Samaritans” demonstrating love to their neighbors. Some share clothing, some dress wounds, some provide transportation, some give money to pay for lodging, but all are interested in assisting the beaten and down-trodden. The universal characteristic among all Samaritan Award recipients is that they would be someone who you would appreciate as a neighbor.
Joann has been a faithful volunteer for most of the 9 1/2 years the Mission has been open. Working in the kitchen every Monday night, she is happy to be serving our guests. Joann, a member of Calvary Chapel in Bay City, has helped her church connect to the Mission in a very special way. Thank you, Joann!
