Dear Friends,

Praying all is well within your households.

Here at the MISSION we are continuing HIS mission!

We serve “meals to go,” breakfast Monday through Friday 9-10am and lunch 12-1pm Monday –Saturday.

Food Distributions are only on Wednesdays (as a drive through), beginning at 830am and Senior Pantry the 3rd Wednesday of the month.

Since the shutdown of schools and businesses in mid-March the need for food boxes has risen by 99%.Since January 1st we have served 4166 meals to go and 2488 food boxes.  We usually receive an abundant quality and quantity of food from local grocery stores when we do “Food Rescue”. However, lately the stores are selling out of everything. We have had to purchase extra food to add to the stocks that we procure though Road Runner Food Bank via Feeding America. We are asking for nonperishable can and box food items to assist in filling the food boxes.

Our current needs:

Aluminum foil

Plastic wrap

Gallon & quart size bags

Toilet paper

Paper towels

Dawn dish soap

Bleach for cleaning

Disposable plates & bowls

Disposable silverware- mostly spoons & forks

To go- boxes for food

Emergency food, clothing, counsel and prayers are available by appointment. 388-5071

Sierra House is still in open. We are presently sheltering 3 women and 2 children.

With our Thrift Store currently being closed, we are not accepting any clothing donations, household items must be sprayed with a vinegar or bleach water mix or other disinfectant mist. We are losing revenue daily not having the thrift store open, with those monies we usually purchase food stocks, pay utilities and payroll, so any dollar amount would be greatly appreciated and truly bless us so we may bless others.

Financial donations can be mailed to:

Silver City Gospel Mission

PO Box 5198

Silver City, NM

88062

A very Special Thank You shout out to all those folks that donated for our new freezer, there are too many of you to list individually.

May God’s grace and love sustain and comfort you throughout these difficult days.

Amy Wagner

Executive Director
