By Patrick Vanderburgh, Executive Director
This time of year, there's joy all over the place, just spilling out of every nook and cranny at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission. Christmas is right around the corner, and we're celebrting the birth of our savior just like the angels did...with great joy!
Don't get me wrong. There's plenty of pain, too. Many of our guests come from broken homes and traumatic backgrounds. Many have endured unimaginable circumstances. Many have struggled with addictions, abuse and injustice.

Help Serve a Thanksgiving Meal!
On Thursday, November 27th we expect to serve hundreds of Thanksgiving meals to the homeless and hurting in our community. If you have a group of five or fewer people who would like to help serve in our kitchen that day, please call (414) 935-0241 beginning at 8am on November 1st. You will need to leave a message with the following information:
- Phone number

Volunteer slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and you will receive a phone call with a confirmation number the week of November 3rd. If the slots fill and you are unable to come on Thanksgiving, please remember that we need to help to serve meals 365 days during the year. So, please consider helping another time!
