Spreading Cheer at a Time of Crisis: OC Rescue Mission Seeks Help

The country is in a time of crisis as it navigates the COVID-19 pandemic. As the holiday quickly approaches, local communities are continually reminded of the importance of the need for hope, especially at a time like right now.

While Orange County Rescue Mission is not able to provide its typical holiday celebrations in the traditional sense, it still hopes to provide homeless families with some cheer this holiday season. They are seeking help from the local community for gift donations to help the formerly homeless men, women, and children living at Village of Hope and other Rescue Mission transitional housing campuses celebrate the holidays.

According to Jim Palmer, Orange County Rescue Mission’s President, the Rescue Mission has an extremely urgent need for holiday gift donations for adults, both men and women, and children ages 10 and up.

Palmer continues on to say that this year’s holiday donations are more important now than ever before.
