Throughout April, The Bowery Mission has been providing recaps to highlight how donations made a difference in the lives of the people they serve.
Whether a warm meal, a hot shower, emergency shelter, or a medical appointment, you helped meet the immediate, basic needs of each person coming to us for help — no questions asked — which many times is the spark that ignites life transformations.
In addition, 318 men and women joined the Bowery Mission's residential recovery programs last year … with 156 of them placed in jobs and 168 placed in housing.
• 30,000 donors gave more than $10 million in financial gifts and in-kind goods
• 750 volunteers each month offered nearly 45,000 volunteer hours
The Bowery Mission, which has been serving in-need New Yorkers since 1879, is located at 227 Bowery between Prince and Rivington.
Go here to learn more about donating … they are always accepting clothing (and food) at the Bowery location:
Clean, new and gently used clothing of all types is helpful. Large sizes are especially helpful. We are always in need of new underwear/undershirts and socks, new and gently used jeans and shoes, and professional clothing for those looking for work or re-entering the workforce.
