Faces of Gratitude
Whether it was in the privilege of giving or in the blessing of receiving, gratitude was in abundance at LBRM's Thanksgiving dinner and breakfast in our cafeteria at the Samaritan House. And we at the Mission are every bit as thankful for those who gave and worked and sacrificed to make it all happen. God bless you all!
Lydia House Chosen for Renovation Project
The Long Beach Community Foundation has selected Long Beach Rescue Mission for their 2017 National Philanthropy Day project. It is an honor to be chosen! Our board, staff and volunteers teamed up on October 21 to renovate the outdoor area and provide a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere for residents of the Lydia House. Thank you, LBCF!
Five men and two women celebrated their graduation from LBRM's New Life Program on Friday, October 13. Their commitment, hard work, and trust in the Lord over the last year will serve them well in the days ahead. Congratulations! Learn more about our programs.
...Thanks to You!
The 2017 Long Beach Leadership Prayer Breakfast was a wonderful blessing, thanks to the Sponsors, Table Hosts, individuals guests and volunteers who collectively made it possible. The event included great food, music, and many inspiring words. But most of all, it accomplished its stated purpose: “to unite community leaders throughout the City of Long Beach to pray together and receive God’s help, encouragement and blessings.” See you again next year!
Thank you to the donors and volunteers who made it possible to distribute 1,400 backpacks to needy students of nine local middle schools this year. Your support is giving children the tools they need to succeed!
Thanks to You!
Another festive Easter celebration (with food and Easter baskets in abundance) took place on Sunday at the Samaritan House—because of you! Your compassion has made it possible to instill hope in hundreds of members of our community. Thank you!
