Homeless for the holidays?

No one in York County should face that. And you can help make sure it doesn't happen.

Can you imagine not having a place to call home for the holidays? Or going hungry when others are celebrating around family, food and friendship?

Both are very real possibilities for many men, women, and children in York County this holiday season. Thousands of your neighbors live below the poverty line, struggling every day just to make ends meet . . . to feed their families . . . to pay their bills.

Holiday dinners and presents? Not even an option for many of them.

More than 10 percent of York County's population lives below the poverty line — including more than one in four people in the 17401 zip code alone. Many work two or more jobs to try and stay afloat, but they're still sinking. Meanwhile ...

Almost 1 in 5 children (19.1%) in York County faces the prospect of going to bed hungry tonight.

That's unacceptable. And you can be part of the solution.

The York Rescue Mission has been meeting the needs of hungry, homeless, and hopeless neighbors for more than half a century. We provide food, shelter, clothing, and a variety of services to help people get back on their feet, find new life, and get a fresh start. People come to the Mission broken and desperate, and they often leave here healed and whole.

Transformation like this can't happen without the compassionate support of friends like you.

Please help today. Because no one should go hungry or homeless for the holidays.

You CAN make a difference today!
