Rescue Mission of Salt Lake
Matching Gift in May
Subway Restaurants of Utah has pledged up to $10,000 for our work at the Rescue Mission and is challenging Rescue Mision supporters to match it during the month of May. This is a true dollar for dollar match, meaning that every dollar turns into two. You can double your impact and have your gift go twice as far to help homeless men, women and children off the streets by supporting the Rescue Mission this month.
If we can match Subway's $10,000 it will mean $20,000 for the Mission during May. A donation of $20,000 would mean a lot, especially during the summer months when donations fall off and our costs, like fuel and electricity, soar.
Additionally, the Mission and Subway Restaurants of Utah are partnering for Subway Day 2013. Mission volunteers and employees from Subway Restaurants across Utah will head to Pioneer Park on Wednesday, June 5, to feed hungry and homeless people. Subway will provide free six-inch subs to homeless and low-income men, women and children. Subway Day will hopefully provide not only food, but encouragement to the homeless in our community, so that they will take advantage of the Mission's other life-changing services, designed to get people off the streets and into housing and employment. Please pray for Subway Day and, if you are able, please donate to meet Subway's $10,000 dollar-for-dollar challenge.

It's the story of Jessica Jacobson, a woman who led a fairly "normal" life until prescription pain killers took over. She ended up homeless, living on the streets in her van until she found help at the Rescue Haven, the Rescue Mission's shelter for women.
