CVRM "90 Days of Summer"


On June 14 staff members from the men’s and women’s programs of the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission will be traveling to areas known to be populated by members of the homeless community to distribute information about Rescue Mission services as well as water, sunscreen, long sleeved shirts, shoes and other supplies.”
“Not everyone can, or wants to come to the Rescue Mission for services,” explained Darla Burkett, Executive Director.  “But we still want to make sure as many people as possible are reminded about our services, and provide them with potentially life-saving items.  No one should suffer because they aren’t aware of the available resources we offer,” she added. 
This outreach is the first of three “90 Days of Summer Relief” trips Rescue Mission staff members will make to homeless encampments. Two vans will leave the Rescue Mission at 8 a.m. and return at noon.  Those wishing to help are encouraged to drop off needed supplies at the Rescue Mission or donate online.
Founded in 1971, the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission provides food, clothing, and safe shelter to anyone in need.  Additionally, CVRM helps people end their cycle of homelessness with extensive counseling, job training, and job placement services.  Currently more than 175,000 meals are provided each year, along with 59,800 nights of safe shelter.  The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission is located at 47-470 Van Buren Street.  To learn more about the Rescue Mission or to donate directly, visit www.CVRM.org and connect with us on facebook www.facebook.com/cvrmrescuemission
