Thanksgiving Family

Dear Caring Neighbor,

You already know that homeless and destitute people in the Triangle have eternal worth and value. Most of our struggling neighbors still remember how Thanksgiving used to be in better times. Some of them lost jobs, then homes. Others are military veterans struggling with civilian life. Still others are too ashamed to return home at all.

It’s heartbreaking. Because you are one of the most compassionate friends of the Durham Rescue Mission, you will be the closest thing they’ve got to family this Thanksgiving—the welcoming arms they need to feel loved and valued again.

That’s why I’m asking you to reach out again . . . to share family love and concern for them in a way they may never have felt before. Your support will help feed them like they’re family—and fuel them with spiritual renewal that, in many cases, will lead to the start of a whole new life in Christ.

You are one of the caring people I rely on most. I know you agree that no one should be without a family on Thanksgiving. That’s why it’s important that you prayerfully open your heart to those who are homeless today!

With your generous gift, you will help someone find a place to call home for Thanksgiving . . . a place where they can belong . . . a place where they are family and a place where they can find help now and throughout the year.

The Bible says, “God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land” (Psalm 68:6). Won’t you share family love, caring, and acceptance this Thanksgiving and all year with someone who needs it desperately?

Thank you. I know hungry and homeless people can count on you!

God bless you,
Dr. Ernie C. Mills
CEO & Founder
