Help Make a Difference for Light of Life Rescue Mission Today

As many of you know, I work at Light of Life Rescue Mission. I have been on staff there for five years. I love it. Starting at 8 a.m. today, The Pittsburgh Foundation has generously provided a $500,000 dollar for dollar match for our organization. I would like to ask each of you to consider giving a donation to our organization today. It’s a great way to help your year-end donation go further! I’ve included instructions on how to give to take advantage of the match below.

For those of you unfamiliar with our organization, we provide food, shelter, recovery, education, employment, and the hope of Christ to the poor, addicted, abused, and needy.

In 2015,  here are some of the things we have accomplished as a ministry:

  • We have served over 166,000 meals
  • We will have provided 11,277 nights of emergency shelter
  • Have had over 600 individual men stayed in our emergency shelter
  • Every night, we provide shelter for around 155 people
  • Each year we provide 828 Chapel services
  • We have had hundreds of people accept Christ
  • We had 24 men and women graduate from our long-term residential program
  • We provided Thanksgiving Dinner baskets to 476 families on the North Side

I’ve included two video testimonies of graduates below the instructions if you want to see the impact our programs have on people’s lives. Please pray about what God might have you do today!

IMPORTANT: The $500,000 match is also available to 40 other organizations. Once the match is gone, it’s gone. That being the case, we would like to ask you to give at 8 a.m. or as early as you possibly can. The earlier you donate the more likely it is that your donation will be matched.

Last year, through your generosity we raised $244,000, with the match! We are setting a goal of raising  a total of 300,000 this year.
