I have supported the Union Rescue Mission for many years with small donations and I am excited (as an introvert) to participate in their virtual fundraising walk. Never one to walk, unless it's up a mountain, I plan to run 10 miles.
If you wish to donate a few dollars to support their work, it would be greatly appreciated.
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.
This cause is very dear to me and I'm trying to make an impact by participating in this amazing Virtual 5k Walk (10 mile run) to Fight Homelessness on Saturday and Sunday, June 13 and 14.
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.
