Evansville Rescue Mission In Dire Need of Bottled Water Donations
The Evansville Rescue Mission has issued a plea to the community. They are in dire need of bottled water donations. According to a post on Facebook, the ERM has been giving out approximately 1,000 bottles of water per week as part of the Grab-n-Go campaign they have launched to help feed those in need in our community. If you are able to make a donation, you can drop them off at either their Donation Center located at 729 East Sycamore Street or at their Main Campus located at 500 East Walnut Street.
The Evansville Rescue Mission has been helping people across the Evansville area for well over 100 years. From their Facebook page:
Founded in 1917 by Dr. Ernest Reveal, the Evansville Rescue Mission (ERM) has provided basic services and ministry to men for 97 years in our homeless shelter. As well, we operate the Youth Care Center, Camp Reveal, and three ERM thrift stores. The ERM served more than 187,000 meals in 2014 and shelters an average of 120 men each night.
Meals are offered daily at the ERM Residence Center and are as follows:
Breakfast: 6:30 a.m. to 7 a.m.
Lunch: Noon to 1 p.m.
Dinner: 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The ERM hosted an average of 25 teens each night in our Youth Care Center in 2014; and provided Thanksgiving food baskets to more than 2,000 families (over 5,000 people) at last year's Gobbler Gathering.
