A New Year Filled with Hope

Guests receiving meals

As we think back on the lives changed at Goodwill Rescue Mission over the past year, we have to express a special thanks to friends like you. Your time spent in prayer, your heart to volunteer, your willingness to give financially…all of your gifts make a difference. Thank you!

Men and women throughout the Newark community are beginning 2020 with renewed hope for their lives, because of your generosity. Whether guests came to our doors needing a nourishing meal or more long-term support, your compassion provides the life-changing resources to help them move forward in their lives.

God also uses your gifts to show neighbors in need they are loved, beyond measure, unconditionally, no matter what their past looks like. What a gift to invite them to begin a new year with hope—all because of the help you’ve offered through your generous support. Thanks again for your partnership with Goodwill Rescue Mission.

All of us thank God for you!
