Thank you to the members of In His Presence Ministries for hosting the annual Happy Birthday Jesus Party for the families staying in shelter at Good Samaritan Rescue Mission. This is always a highlight for the moms, dads, and children. Great food, loving people, wonderful music all complete with thoughtful presents! Thank you and Merry Christmas to you all at In His Presence Ministries!
The 13th annual “Stuff the Stocking” toy drive was another huge success for the children staying in shelter this Christmas! A few weeks after touring the Mission, 24 giant bags stuffed with toys were delivered by Mr. Dave Urlaub and some of the SkillsUSA student officers. “It really opened my eyes to how some people spend their Christmas morning,” said Hope, one of the student officers. We are very grateful for the long-standing partnership the Mission has with the Bay Arenac ISD Career Center! On behalf of the children, “Thank you! and Merry Christmas!”
All Saints Parish in Bay City collected items for the Mission through their Advent Giving Tree. You all did an amazing job! The many men, women, and children staying in shelter this Christmas season are very appreciative of your generous hearts. Thank you Bill and Betty for delivering everything! Merry Christmas!
The Student Council members of Essexville Garber High School spent a Saturday baking cookies for our guests, helped shelve food in the pantry, did some cleaning, and washed windows! A very busy day and a tasty cookie benefit for our guests! Thank you all! Merry Christmas!
