Mission Residents Help Seniors

Mission Residents Help Seniors

After the Mission’s Thanksgiving support drew such compliments from shut-ins around the County, the City’s Meals on Wheels management asked if our residents could help serve the Christmas meal to seniors on 17 December. Eleven residents of the Mission volunteered to help at Benavidez and Munson Senior Centers. Pictured above are those who served at Munson, L-R: Margaret Edmond, Marcos Soto, Kay Casper, Richard Berger, Ryan Herndon, and Tara Nelson Misy Lunsford, Alison Moore, Karen Phillips, Claudia Giron, and Don Tellez (not pictured) served at Munson.

As a matter of policy, the Mission encourages Shelter residents to serve others in the community.  For example, Shelter residents police up trash along Triviz twice each month. In addition, residents and off-site volunteers prepare, stage and deliver hot holiday meals to residents around the County for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Shelter residents plan and execute the City’s Easter Sunrise Service each year. Every August before school starts, residents and volunteers give away new shoes, new socks and new underwear to 600-800 school children around the County in the Mission’s Back to School Program.
