It takes just $9 to provide one full night of meals, shelter and care for someone in need. Every donation makes such a difference in the lives of those we serve. Oftentimes, knowing someone cares is what makes the most profound impact on another person. Our friend Calvin recently sent us a letter explaining how he used his birthday party to send a message of hope to those struggling with hunger and homelessness;
Dear Portland Rescue Mission,
For my Birthday, I asked my friends to put money in a jar instead of giving me presents. And I have collected 317 Dollars to help with any of your needs.
Happy birthday, Calvin, and thank you so much! Your kindness and generosity has provided over 35 nights of food, shelter and care for people in need!
“Thank you for every donation….you change people’s lives. You changed mine, so that’s why I’m here. Thank you.” – Neiva
