Homelessness can often feel lonely and isolating, especially during the holiday season. With the weather becoming colder and the glimpses of families celebrating together in their homes, it can take quite a toll on those in the streets. Each year, we invite the entire community to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas at the Mission and this year is no different. We welcome families to share a special meal together and invite the women and children to stay safe and warm in the shelter, both of which are resources offered 365 days a year.
If you would like to be part of making the holidays special for our homeless neighbors this year, there are a few ways to get involved:
1. Pray for transformation in their lives through Christ
2. Volunteer at the Mission: https://turlockgospelmission.org/volunteer/
3. Donate monetarily (online: https://turlockgospelmission.org/donate/ or mail your donation to 437 S. Broadway Ave. Turlock, CA 95380)
4. Provide resources (see shopping lists below for each holiday)
We are preparing a festive holiday meal with all the fixings! Here’s what we need:
