Portland Rescue Mission Ministries, Inc.
May 19, 2010
I love what this organization stands for, and believe in the work they are doing in the lives of men and women. What I love even more, is the way my life changes, after every interaction with this organization and the people they serve.
When you volunteer, you expect to help someone else. What ends up happening, is you experience change in your own life, and come away feeling blessed. I am humbled to be able to serve these people who live a life that is so different than mine. I look forward all month to helping serve dinner on the last Friday of the month. I have been enough times that I am starting to recognize people, and get to know them. I feel like serving them is a small thing, compared to the difficulties they experience on a daily basis.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve, and I really enjoy the staff and other volunteers at the Mission as well. Definitely a worthy place to donate your time and money!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the lives of many people I attend church with. I have seen the work they have done bearing great results, that may not have otherwise occurred without the Mission.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
