Mission Update: Join us in serving this Holiday Season!

In the next month, we are expecting to see an increased number of meals and community food baskets given to the hungry and homeless population of Atlantic County.  With multiple casino closings, we anticipate the needs of this new population to present challenges for the Mission.  We need you now more than ever.  Your partnership is a blessing as we prepare for the hundreds of souls we'll care for this fall season. As we begin to set the ground work for the cold winter months ahead, any gift you send today will be a blessing! Please join your friends and neighbors who support this life-changing work by volunteering on Thanksgiving or Christmas
