Our good friends at the City Gospel Mission do some amazing work with making Cincinnati, and the world, a better place. Maybe you’ve seen their Feed Cincy Now billboards around town? Has your church partnered with them to help the homeless? City Gospel Mission works hard to transform the lives of men, women, and youths in our area and we are proud to help them in any way we can.
City Gospel Mission recently held their annual golf outing, which helps fund their programs focusing on recovery, youth, food, shelter, and job training. Over 100 golfers play in teams of four, said City Gospel Mission’s Tim Curtis. The players can win prizes for longest drive, closest to the pin, lowest score, and more while helping the community.
Each year, City Gospel Mission raises $45,000 with the golf outing that goes directly to their programs. According to FeedCincyNow.org, they annually serve 139,000 hot meals and provide 29,000 nights of safe shelter to the homeless and hurting. With Cincinnati’s homeless population up 150% in the last 15 years, the work of City Gospel Mission is an essential part of the community.
“The best part about working and volunteering is the purpose you feel when you serve others,” said Curtis. “When you get the privilege to show God’s love to those in need.”
If you’re looking for a way to get involved, City Gospel Mission has events throughout the year that you can volunteer or participate in. Their current campaign is Feed Cincy Now, which is helping the hungry and homeless. Just $1.92 can provide a meal for someone in need. The organization hopes to provide 46,300 meals with the Feed Cincy Now campaign this year.
If you know of an organization that could use a donation of water for their events and programs, let us know! At Alpine Valley, we believe in helping the world, one step at a time. Reach out to us at 513-672-3400 ext 130.
