October 2011 Charity of the Month: City Rescue Mission

Established in 1946, City Rescue Mission serves the homeless and needy in Jacksonville, providing them with the food, clothing, shelter, emergency services, and the counseling needed to begin rebuilding their lives. With the success of the LifeBuilders Recovery Program and the New Day Workforce, City Rescue Mission provides the structured support necessary to help those who are homeless get off the street and transition into the workforce.

City Rescue Mission does not receive any government funding. The Mission relies on contributions from volunteer programs, corporate sponsorships, monetary donations, and planned giving. With generous donations from concerned individuals, churches, businesses, and civic organizations, City Rescue Mission continues to support Jacksonville’s homeless population.

Donations will be accepted at our registers throughout the month of October. In November, we will introduce collection bins for a canned and dry-food drive to benefit the Mission.
