For many Christians, that means thinking about sacrifice, renewal, forgiveness, and of course, ham.
Unfortunately, not everyone in Colorado Springs has a big juicy piece of meat for their Sunday brunch. The poor among us are in grave danger of going ham-less. And that's why the Springs Rescue Mission is asking anyone who can to donate a ham.
Here's the info.:
Hams for the Hungry and Homeless
Colorado Springs, CO — March 29, 2010 — Springs Rescue Mission is in urgent need of a large amount of Hams as it prepares to feed hundreds of Colorado Springs homeless and hungry this Saturday, April 3 at its annual “Easter Alive Celebration” to be held at First Presbyterian Church in Colorado Springs.
In addition, any donations of non-perishable food items in large quantities are encouraged to help fill many food boxes that will be given away to families in need throughout the month of April.
Also needed are vehicle donations to help several families who need help with transportation. Through a community outreach network, the Mission helps families with children who have special medical needs who travel back and forth to doctor appointments throughout the month. Good used vans would be preferable for these families.
Where to drop off any donations:
Drop off hams and non-perishable food donations at 1 West Las Vegas Street in Colorado Springs.
