One of our main goals at Mission:Change is to bring awareness to social injustices right here in our community. Albany has 400+ homeless men, women and yes children. A by-product of homelessness has long been hopelessness, as society's victims were given little chance of escaping their station in life. July’s mission is to bring hope to the homeless. One organization that seeks to give hope to our homeless neighbors is the Albany Rescue Mission.
While the thrift store and warehouse were getting a much overdue cleaning and organizing, a handful of volunteers began their service by cleaning out, organizing and everything in between in the Rescue Mission’s food pantry. Allyson, one of the four that volunteered in the pantry that morning explains it from her perspective."As we worked, I began to think of all of the things in my pantry. I felt guilty about throwing out food just because we decided to eat out instead of cook at home. I realized that in my world, food is abundant. We eat Wednesday night supper at church, where the food is beautiful, fresh, and delicious. We focus all of our social events around food, and almost always have leftovers. We take dining out for granted- well, we take ALL things for granted. Residents would come in and out of the pantry, each one stopping to thank us for helping. When we walked outside, I was honestly relieved for the fresh air. I looked around, and thought again....I have so much, and I still complain. I whine about not having this or that car, clothing, etc. I was so filled with emotion over my own selfishness, gluttony, and pride. I watched as "Little" Larry sat and talked with residents and others about Jesus. He is such a servant of the Lord, and does so with such a joyful heart. I felt so blessed to be a part of this ministry. I pray that God will continue to change my heart and open my eyes. I only helped for a few hours on one day, and I know there is so much more work to be done. It was a blessing I can hardly describe. thanks."
