LEXINGTON RESCUE MISSION INC
September 28, 2012

Volunteering is something that I have always wanted to do but never really knew how to go about getting started. Then one fateful day in 2009 I recieved a speeding ticket and entered into a deferral program which required me to complete some community service. The Lexington Rescue Mission happened to be one of the options in the program. My first time at The Mission I knew it was something special. The people there were genuine and really seemed to care for the people coming in for assistance and meals. The more I went the more I felt myself connecting not only with my fellow volunteers but also with the people coming in to The Rescue Mission for help. Every time I went in to volunteer I learned something new about programs and different ways The Lexington Rescue Mission helps those in need in our community. By the time my "community service" was completed I knew that this was not the end of my journey with The Lexington Rescue Mission. I had learned so much about how the work they do here changes peoples lives an and in turn had started changing my life and my heart. I wanted to do more and be more involved with such a great organization. Three years later I am still actively involved with the Lexington Rescue Mission not only as a volunteer but also in fund raising and other community driven activites. I would highly recommend The Lexington Rescue Mission to anyone wanting to help and get more involved in their community!
