Crossroads Ministries Receives Support From Care & Comfort and Our Bangor Team
Posted by Care & Comfort on 02/06/2018.
Care & Comfort and our Bangor team presented Crossroads Ministries Resource Center a Jeans Fund gift in December. Crossroads is based in Old Town and also assists residents in eight surrounding communities.
Ronnie Murphy, representing the ministries to receive our donation, spoke with staff about the organization''s mission to help put a face on poverty while feeding, advocating, clothing and educating those in need. Crossroads Resources provides a welcoming place where opportunities are provided to meet immediate and long-term goals and to foster independence.
Homelessness, hunger, and hopelessness should not be experienced by anyone ~ but they are! Thanks to Ronnie and his all-volunteer team there is assistance available, and it comes with dignity and respect for those seeking it," remarked Mike Stair, Care & Comfort''s COO. “For over 27 years our agency and employees have partnered to build healthier communities by supporting organizations who offer local solutions to local problems. I heartily thank them for their choice of Crossroads Ministries and have no doubt that this grassroots group will be helping our neighbors for a very long time.”
The resource center in Old Town is open Monday through Friday from 11AM-3PM. While their focus is on feeding as many families as possible, they also assist with utility bills, clothing, furniture, household items, and more.
"We firmly believe that when you give people a hand, they will extend theirs in turn," remarked Ronnie. We agree with this man who is unselfishly available 24/7 if he knows someone needs help.
