    Since the birth of Old Savannah City Mission in 1997, we have provided hundred of thousands
of meals.  We calculated their costs at $1.79.  So many faithful donors have given with that cost in
mind.  Now reality requires us to increase our costs to $2.05 per meal.  

    Please remember, Old Savannah City Mission is privately funded.  It does not request or receive
any public funds
-government assistance with strings attached-.  It depends upon people of
goodwill who genuinely care about the less fortunate right here in our community.  Increasing
numbers of people are coming to the Mission for help.  Everyone is facing economic challenges.
The Mission must ramp up its fund raising efforts.  Since donations have been decreasing in sync
with the increasing need for services.

    Bill Stiles, OSCM Executive Director, is strongly encouraging people of goodwill to step up to the
plate NOW and help the Mission feed the hungry and homeless in our community.  Here’s what your
donation can do:

$20.50 will provide 10 meals
$41.00 will provide 20 meals
$65.50 will provide 30 meals
$82.00 will provide 40 meals
$102.50 will provide 50 meals
$410.00 will provide 200 meals

The ASSOCIATION OF PAROLING AUTHORITIES INTERNATIONAL (APAI) presented the
Old Savannah City Mission its “Community Service Award” in recognition of its FRESH
START PROGRAM.  The Mission’s nomination came from the Georgia Department of
Corrections.
Mission Receives An Award
Fresh Start is a year long residential transitional program with high standards, strong
boundaries and clear direction.  It is designed to serve men and women who while
incarcerated come to faith in Christ and genuinely desire a fresh start in life.  The program
functions as a bridge from incarceration to re-incorporation.  Its goal is for ex-offenders and
ex-offender is assigned a mentor, a life coach.  

The Association of Paroling Authorities (APAI) began in the early 1970s as a group of
international colleagues in the field of parole.  They shared a strong interest in discussing
best practices and current issues surrounding early release, reentry into the community and
public safety.  For more information on APAI, please visit their website

Reginald Lee, Director of Programs, received the 2011 Savannah Men Making a Difference
Award from the organization My Brothaz Home, Inc.  My Brothaz Home is a nonprofit to the
HIV/AIDS epidemic, the mission of My Brothaz Home is to reduce the number of new HIV

Home, shared with the audience that the Men Making a Difference Award is given annually
in recognition of "distinguished humanitarian efforts to build and improve the lives of others
while promoting HIV/AIDS awareness in the community".  With over 32 years of human
service experience, Reginald has a long history of working with at-risk and homeless
