I have been donating to this mission for over 2 years now, and the work they do is amazing. We have so many people right here in our own USA that are hungry and helpless. Edmundite Missions provides above and beyond food, clothing, and other basic necessities so people can survive and maintain their dignity. They are accountable for every penny that they receive. Every gift that is given is acknowledged with a personal letter from director Chad along with stories and testimonies of the work that they do. God Bless this mission
Without this mission many in Selma would go hungry. AL has no interest in helping the poor. Selma doesn't even have public transportation . Many live in 3rd world conditions with little hope for themselves or their children. Thank you Edmundites for you good work at Don Bosco in Selma and the surrounding area!
The mission and ministries of Edmundite Missions is nothing short of inspiring and remarkable. They use their resources wisely in service to the Selma community providing immediate needs to our most vulnerable brothers and sisters. At the same time, their advocacy on behalf of the poor help create sustainable improvements in alleviating poverty. Chad is an innovative leader who leads an excellent staff and army of volunteers. I'm proud to be associated with such a fantastic organization.
I've known the Edmundite Missions for many years. My husband and I were so impressed with the organization that we took our sons, 12 and 17, to Selma during Spring Break this year. We wanted our boys to witness first hand the good the Missions does for those who are the most in need, those who are easily forgotten. It was an experience that our family will never forget. Their leader is Chad McEachern and he is a true visionary. The folks who work and volunteer at the Missions are truly committed to serving the poor. They live it and breathe it. If you ask the people who are helped by the Missions, they will tell you how thankful they are for this bright spot in the midst darkness. I am hard pressed to think of another organization worthy of more support than the Missions.
The Edmundite Missions is a true blessing to the people in Selma and surrounding areas. I had a friend who had no heat in her house this pass winter and they provide her not only a place to stay but food also until the winter got better.
The Edmundite Missions has been a part of Selma and surrounding communities for over 75 years providing unwavering support to those in need. At the heart of the organization is the Bosco Nutrition Center that not only provides meals twice a day, 365 days a year but also provides meal delivery for those who are homebound. It's also important to know their help goes way beyond just feeding the poor. They provide a wonderful senior program, emergency shelter for those in need, help with utility bills, clothing and much more. I'm very proud to volunteer as a board member and to be a donor to such a caring and impactful organization.
I love organizations like the Missions that are so helpful to society and treat people so well. It's such an asset to Selma. Chad is an amazing leader too. He's very involved with everything that goes on at the Missions and makes us feel welcome.
I have visited the Edmundite Missions on a few occasions. The work done there with the poor is nothing short of amazing. The Bosco Center feeds hundreds of the Selma poor daily. Truly an amazing ministry.
The Edmundite Missions are an intrinsic part of the community of Selma, Alabama. They do outstanding work with the poor in that city and in the Black Belt of the south. They run the Bosco nutrition center and feed hundreds of people every single day!!!! I have been a donor for years, and I am thrilled to see my donations really helping the poor and disadvantaged. They are a godsend to the community there!!
God Bless them!!
For several years the Society of St. Edmund Fathers and Brothers have been raising money claiming that they do work for and in the African-American community. Nothing could be further from the truth. Just like the Red Cross did in New Orleans, they are filling their bank accounts and just pulling African-Americans out to pose in pictures. It has been stated that the Archbishop of Mobile, is "boys" with Father Paul Mcquillian of The City of St. Jude, an Edmundite priest. He treat African-Americans at his parish and in the archdiocese as if it was 1950 instead of 2015.
They should be ashamed , they raise money on the back of African-Americans and treat them like dirt. The Attorney General of the State should do a forensic audit and investigate them thoroughly.
