BENEFITING: MOBILE LOAVES & FISHES INC
EVENT DATE: May 25, 2014
Instead of gifts for my 50th birthday, I would like to ask your consideration to donate to a few charities. One charity is local and one is global. My local charity is Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Inc. in Austin TX. This is a charity that I have been donating for over 10 years.
The story of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Inc reminds us all that we should take care of our brothers and sisters in need.
The mission at Mobile Loaves & Fishes is to provide uncompromising love and hospitality to our brothers and sisters in need.
Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Inc. began in 1998 when five parishioners of Saint John Neumann Catholic Church in Austin, TX began delivering meals out of the back of their minivans to men and women they found living on the streets of their city.
The sixth founder, formerly homeless himself, became the founder’s guide to the streets, and they began distributing 75 sack lunches a day to test their resolve in fulfilling God’s call. The first trip was in September of 1998, and by December of that year there was enough money to purchase a 1997 Ford F-250 pick-up truck with a catering bed.
Today, in addition to continuing our MLF Trucks, we have expanded our ministry to include the ROADS, Genesis Gardens, and Community First! programs.
Join us in the feeding, the loving, and the helping of those among us in need.
