Generous Donation from Dion’s

dionsDion’s Corporation came all the way from Albuquerque to honor the Mission with a $2500 grant on 12 June. Dion’s representatives present were Tim Mickkelsen, Manager of the Dion’s on E. Lohman and Nicole Marquez, Corporate Community Relations Coordinator.

Dion’s is a New Mexico-based corporation with 15 restaurants in Albuquerque, two in Lubbock, and one each in Colorado Springs, Santa Fe and Las Cruces. Dion’s had been searching without success for a worthy charity that helped children and the hungry. Coincidentally, some on corporate staff heard about the Gospel Rescue Mission by word of mouth. In May, Nicole asked for a brief summary of the Mission’s work in 2014, and the rest became history. We thank Dion’s for their generous contribution and their delicious pizza!
