BENEFITING: Bay Area Rescue Mission
EVENT DATE: Mar 31, 2016
Winter’s chill is losing its bite. That means spring is soon approaching. We are consistently keeping the Rescue Mission clean and in good shape for 250 people who stay with us nightly. The staff has identified a special need that has been kept under covers until now … keeping our mattresses hygienic for the guests that come to us for a safe night’s rest.
Working with those escaping the street, you are in contact with sicknesses and ailments due to being exposed to the elements and lack of access to health care.
We work hard to keep the Mission clean but this Spring we see the need to go one step further by giving our mattresses an extra layer of protection with hygienic mattress covers. Our goal is to purchase 275 durable, hygienic mattress covers for $27 each that can give that extra layer of protection of health to better ensure a safe night’s sleep.
We are closing this fundraiser on March 31st so we can put this project into motion.
