Dear Family, Friends and Allies,

People experiencing homelessness is out of control in Southern California! In Los Angeles County alone the homeless population is now over 58,000 people, with a staggering 111% increase in families experiencing homelessness at Skid Row. 

The COVID-19 Pandemic has created a true CRISIS for people devastated by homelessness in Southern California! While most of us have homes, food, toilet paper, etc., many of the poor and afflicted have nothing.

This cause is dear to us and we're trying to make an impact by participating in this amazing Virtual 5k Walk to Fight Homelessness on Saturday and Sunday, June 13 and 14, 2020. We actually will be walking/jogging in an area near home. We will have our facial coverings and, if needed, doing physical distancing along the less-traveled route.

Union Rescue Mission is one of the largest privately funded homeless shelters in the United States. They are also the only mission on Skid Row that NEVER turns away a single woman or family with children. In addition, they are currently fundraising to build a third facility for women and children in South LA. 

Can you please help join the cause and make a donation to our campaign today?

We truly appreciate all the support we can get! Together we can make a difference! 

Thank you and God bless you!

 Emma & David

I've given to this organization before and know that it's better to give to the Union Mission than directly to a homeless person. God Bless you Emma for doing your part.
