Bridgeport Rescue Mission

Dear Friend,

 

Bridgeport Rescue Mission is honored to have been chosen as the 2017 beneficiary of the Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival, one of the most celebrated community traditions in Fairfield County. Our partnership will provide a platform for Bridgeport Rescue Mission to advocate for individuals and families in need and educate the community on the wonderful work we do every day. The funds raised, through this three-day event, will significantly increase the impact the Mission can make in our community. We hope we can count on your generous contribution and participation.

 

Bridgeport Rescue Mission demonstrates the love of God to the hungry, homeless, and addicted 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We provide a place of hope and dignity, fighting poverty from the inside out. Our residential New Life Program offers life skills training, counseling, and case management. As the largest provider of food services in the region, we provide more than 450,000 meals a year through: our Dining Room on Fairfield Avenue, our Mobile Kitchens that go out to impoverished neighborhoods in Bridgeport and South Norwalk, and our daily Food Pantry Program that offers non-perishable food and fresh produce.

 

When men, women, and children come through our doors beaten up and beaten down, we don’t see what is, we see what can be. Over the past 24 years we’ve seen thousands of lives transformed through our programs and services. Funding from this year’s Festival will enable Bridgeport Rescue Mission to reach even more men, women, and children in need and get them back on their feet. You can help make this possible by underwriting a portion of the Festival. Enclosed is information on underwriting opportunities. We truly appreciate your consideration.

 

With gratitude,

 

Rev. Terry Wilcox

Executive Director
