Goodwill Rescue Mission empowers the poor, homeless, and addicted of Newark to encounter Christ through compassionate care and comprehensive life transformation that meets immediate needs and encourages many to dare to hope for a life of dignity and dedication to being a contributing member of their community.
“But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.”
– Luke 2:10
Twinkling lights. Friendly carolers. Hues of green and red sprinkled across the city. It’s the holiday season — a special time to give thanks and share gifts.
But as the President of Goodwill Rescue Mission, many of the things I’m grateful for don’t fit under a tree or in a box. Yet they are very valuable...
I’m thankful that:
I’m thankful for compassionate partners like you.
Without your support, the gifts noted above wouldn’t be possible. You provide the hurting and homeless in Northern New Jersey with nourishing food, safe shelter and access to comprehensive programs. Your gifts help to rescue guests from hopelessness and put them on a path to new life.
All of us at Goodwill Rescue Mission wish you a joyous Christmas season. As you gather with loved ones, and perhaps open beautifully-wrapped presents, please know how thankful we are for your gifts to the Mission. Especially the ones that you make possible, but can’t be wrapped.
Rev. David P. Jones
