2012 Rescue Mission Food Drive
Every year the Mission partners with Lebanon Rescue Mission and Water Street Ministries for the Annual Fall Food Drive. The impact of our paternship is tremendous! Last year we served over 408,750 meals (180,435 at the York Rescue Mission) all provided by your generous donations. This year we expect those numbers to be even higher.
The York Rescue Mission is planning to meet the needs of over 5,500 men, women and children in our community this holiday season. We are inteding to supply approximately 1,700 Thanksgiving baskets to (individuals and families) living in poverty within York County.
To do this we need 224,000 pounds of non-perishable food items!
Please help us supply a Thanksgiving meal by donating your resources or talents:

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these" Matthew 19:13-14 NLT
Each year, you, our donors and volunteers, help to send a message to all those we serve that they are not forgotten. The fact that they receive from people they have never met helps them to believe that there is good in the world. When people act unselfishly, with no expectations, it becomes easier to believe in a world of love and hope.
This Christmas holiday season we want our guests to know about the priceless gift of God's unconditional love. Many of the hurting people we serve may know little or nothing about the great gift of Christmas, the birth of Jesus. Be a part of making this wonderful gift a reality.
You can help by filling a backpack with age appropriate items for newborn to 18 years of age, boy and girl. Some ideas are:
Please place all items in a Ziploc see-through bag for safety purposes. We must be able to examine all items donated before placing them in a backpack. Also label the bag with the appropriate age and if it's for a boy/girl.
