We believe in giving back to our community, not only by creating jobs (see our blog on bringing assembly back to the USA), but also by donating to the less fortunate members of our community. We wished to find something local to us here in Camarillo, Ventura County, CA.
Because of this we have elected to support the Ventura County Rescue Mission. Our financial gift is used in their refuge, recovery, and restoration program to provide food, shelter, clean clothes, and substance abuse recovery programs to the homeless. The mission also gives spiritual guidance and support to find a path to God.
The mission is able to provide a full meal at a cost of only $2.05 thanks to food donations and volunteer support. Those of us in Ventura County can also support the mission by shopping at their thrift store, where 100% of the proceeds go straight to helping the homeless become productive citizens again.
Another great program within the Rescue Mission Alliance is The Lighthouse for homeless single women and mothers with children. Nothing saddens our hearts more than the lost potential of children who find themselves on the streets due to the unfortunate circumstances of their parents. It is our hope that with each donation, we give someone a brighter future they otherwise wouldn’t have had.
