Faithful Kenny was back again this year to help scrub and put new finish on the dining room floor. The floor revitalization is always a milestone for our staff. It’s a reminder that things are progressing toward our big event on Thanksgiving Day.
Welcome back Melissa!
Melissa has returned to cook for us part-time in the kitchen. We are so glad that she is back with us ministering to our guests through the evening meal.
It was 41 degrees last night at the Mission. We had 20 women and 58 men to come in out of the cold.
A HUGE 👏🏻 thank you to all our faithful supporters who enable the mission to help people come in off the cold streets at night! Because of your faithfulness and God‘s goodness, we have never missed a night of being open as a community refuge.
Sarah buys yarn at yard sales and makes these fabulous hats to share with our Chattanooga Rescue Mission guests!
Demetrius has been back in the shelter with us. I always enjoy having him around. He keeps us entertained with his great sense of humor. A big thank you to our donors! Your support provided a safe, warm place for Demetrius to stay tonight.
Russell Cellular ran a blanket drive in March. This is one of their posts. More to come on their incredible results!
Leading up to our Thanksgiving meal each year we receive donated turkeys. The turkeys are cooked at the beginning of Thanksgiving week and are prepared on Wednesday at our annual Turkey Pull. This year we plan to prepare 20 turkeys for our big Thanksgiving meal. Last year, we fed 409 people on Thanksgiving Day. The turkeys not used for the meal are frozen and we incorporate them into the shelter meal throughout the year.
Doesn’t it seem like mornings come quickly? Chris is getting his things together to start a new day after sleeping in his mission bunk.
It is 3:06 am. Who is up at this time of night!!? The C.R.M Night Shelter Manager. He has security checks he monitors throughout the late shift. It helps keep the mission a safe place for our guests.
Becky and Ed are working hard to make the dining room look fantastic!
