This donation continues the mission of the Girl Scouts which was
founded in 1912 in Savannah by Juliette Gordon Low by helping girls to
“develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing
understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions
and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute
to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills,
and cooperation with others”. The donation will be used in our feeding
program that serves over 5,000 homeless and hungry people monthly.

recipients for the third year of Girl Scout Cookies

|GIVING FALLS OFF DURING THE SUMMER.
|That's why you are a true blessing to people in desperate need.
Your faithful support is needed during the summer months to help
homeless and hungry people.
|Please read my letter for details!
I'm writing you today on behalf of the homeless people of our
community - with an urgent plea for help as the summer heat kicks up.
Summer is an especially critical time of year at Old Savannah City
Mission - because our support gifts plummet as many of our friends
leave for well-deserved vacations. And this puts a tremendous strain on
our ability to minister to hungry and homeless people.
You see, the needs of our struggling neighbors don't fall off in the heat
of summer. In fact, with so many people outside, summer can be and
especially difficult and dangerous time.
This summer, countless men, women and children will walk through
our doors looking for food, shelter, showers, clothing and a way to a
We want to provide life-Changing services AND the good news of God's
love to all who come to Old Savannah City Mission. With your help, we
can put the impoverished on a path to spiritual renewal and, in many
cases, total life transformation. But we need your help!
The heat of summer really takes a bite out of our budget because
our water usage and electricity spike this time of year.
Will you please make a generous gift today to provide basic services
and hope for a better life for our community's homeless and needy
Thank you for your continued support - you are a true blessing to
people in desperate need this summer.
|Your support is needed for the 8th Annual Men’s Wearhouse National Suit
Drive in Savannah. Donations will support Old Savannah City Mission.
Old Savannah City Mission and Men’s Wearhouse create sharp-dressed
job seekers with the Annual National Suit Drive. Starting June 22, 2015
until Thursday, July 31, 2015 Old Savannah City Mission is partnering with
the local Men’s Wearhouse Store to help disadvantaged job seekers get a
boost of self-confidence during the 8th Annual National Suit Drive, the
country’s largest collection of gently used business attire.
This is Old Savannah City Mission’s seventh time joining Men’s
Wearhouse and approximately 200 other charities across the country to
distribute the items collected at more than 900 Men’s Wearhouse
locations. Items collected include men’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts,
and shoes. Residents of Savannah and the metropolitan area may
donate their gently used and clean items at the local Men’s Wearhouse
store located at 7929 Abercorn Street, Suite 205.
“We are thrilled to partner with Men’s Warhouse on this critical effort,”
said Bill Stiles, Executive Director of the Old Savannah City Mission.
“Many men in Savannah and men enrolled in our residential programs
are still struggling to find jobs as the economy slowly recovers. The
National Suit Drive will empower these men with the self-confidence that
comes from looking sharp and will help them stand out from the crowd of
job seekers.” By collecting and donating professional clothing, Men’s
Wearhouse aims to help men suit-up for job interview and give them an
important boost of confidence that will help them reach their goals.
Nationally, Men’s Wearhouse hopes to collect more than 200,000
articles of clothing to benefit charities like the Old Savannah City Mission.
Because of the generosity of donors in 2014 Men’s Wearhouse stores
collected over 202,825 items of professional clothing. Because of local
donations last year, Old Savannah City Mission was able to help dozens
of men who sought help with business clothing “get suited-up” for their
next job interview and get back on their feet.
To thank donors for their generosity, Men’s Wearhouse will reward
them with a 50%off coupon toward their next purchase at a Men’s
Wearhouse Store. On behalf of Men’s Wearhouse, Old Savannah City
Mission is sincerely grateful to everyone locally that donated items to last
year’s campaign, and we encourage your support this worthy cause again
