Often a hot meal is
the first step toward
a changed life.
FOR LARA, IT WAS
DO OR DIE ...
SO MANY PEOPLE LIKE LARA NEED
YOU THIS HOLIDAY SEASON. YOUR
SUPPORT HELPS THOSE IN NEED...
AND TRANSFORMS LIVES!
This is a true mission story from one of our sister missions. The name has been changed to protect the privacy of the client.

   The doctors said if I kept drinking, I'd be
dead in six months."

Lara remembers that night in the    
emergency room, 20 years of alcohol abuse
led to advanced cirrhosis of the liver.

She started drinking to drown her pain from
a stepfather who was "abusive in every way
possible - physical, sexual, emotional, you
name it." Her drinking eventually played a
role in her own divorce, leaving Lara as a
single mom with a young daughter.

That night in the ER, Lara knew she needed
help, and fast. She went to the Old
Savannah City Mission, Thinking it was "My
only hope. This was going to work, or I
wasn't going to make it."

She made it. She quit drinking, got healthy,
and gave her life to Jesus. Today, Lara says
she wouldn't have made it without you:
"Thank you for your support!"

Dear Friends,

  On the best of days, life on the streets is miserable. During the winter months... well, it's the worst.

  That's why Old Savannah City Mission launched the
2017 Winter Survival Fund.

  
The number of people who turn to us for life-changing help is always the highest during winter, when their
struggle to survive is the hardest. They come to us for food... a safe place to sleep... a way to warm up... for hope.

  Right now,
your help is critical - maybe even lifesaving.

       
We need to receive critical funding over the next 60 days to ensure we're ready to welcome our
       hurting neighbors.

       Your support will helps us provide shelter, hot, nourishing meals and warm clothes homeless
       people desperately need to survive this winter.

  
That's not all ...

  
Here at the Mission, hurting, broken people also experience kindness and encouragement. In time by God's
grace, many will overcome crippling addictions, past abuse and misguided choices. They'll get a second chance
at life - reclaiming their dignity, independence and hope.

  But only with ongoing support from caring friends like you.
Truly, this is the time of the year homeless
people need your compassion the most.

  
Jesus said that even a cup of water given in His name can make an eternal difference (Mark 9:41)
So please, give generously to our 2017 Winter Survival Fund today. Help save homeless people from the brutal
streets
