Church of the Holy Spirit donates $100,000 to Rescue Mission of Roanoke

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — The Roanoke rescue mission has 100,000 reasons to smile.

On Sunday, the Church of the Holy Spirit in Cave Spring donated $100,000 to the Roanoke Rescue Mission.

This generous gift will benefit the Mission’s efforts to serve the hundreds of individuals and families who stay at the Mission daily.

The legacy of providing emergency meals and shelter has extended to street medical outreach, professional case management services and even aftercare to ensure those housed stay at home. We are here – 24/7, we never close. Grassroots support makes this possible. We are very grateful to the Church of the Holy Spirit and many others who are with us every day and every night with their generous support.
