Truly, we could not do what we do at the Los Angeles Mission and the Anne Douglas Center without generous people like our donors and volunteers donating their time and resources. We are especially grateful at this time of year as we seek to make our friends and neighbors living on Skid Row feel they have a family they can come to during the Thanksgiving season. The holidays can be a tough time for those who are homeless or hurting. They can be far from their families and are often dealing with significant physical or mental health issues. At the Mission, we want our students and guests to see the hope they have within themselves to live a new life. And that hope can start with a meal, such as the one thousands will receive at our annual Thanksgiving Street Event on November 25th. From all of us at the Los Angeles Mission, we hope you have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving. Your partnership gives hurting and hungry people something to be thankful for. We are filled with gratitude for all you do to make a difference in the greater Los Angeles area. Please download the November issue of Crossroads to read more about what’s happening this month!
