We were so blessed this past winter with the privilege of running an overnight emergency shelter for the first time. The shelter housed over 300 unique individuals from October 2014- April 2015, which equated to a person filling a bed over 3,600 times. This allowed us to help our guests find work, services, and housing they needed throughout the harsh winter months. Along with the emergency shelter, the Keystone Rescue Mission in was able to distribute to those in need over 44,000 lbs of food, 26,000 lbs of clothing, and over 14,000 hot meals last year alone between the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre locations. This only happened through gifts given by caring individuals who were focused on changing lives and inspiring hope to those in need.
Focused on changing lives as a mission, we are launching the Keystone Mission 180 fund raising program. This program will help offset some of the ongoing costs of running the mission as well as providing the Mission the opportunity to expand our services to the communities of Scranton & Wilkes-Barre. This GoFundMe campaign allows individuals, organizations, and families to partner with us to help our guests make a 180 degree change in their lives. We are asking for donations of $180.00 at a time to enable the Mission to not only continue the services being provided but to expand services and potentially physical facilities in both the Scranton and Wilkes-Barre areas.
Please consider partnering with us to:
Inspire Hope for Those in Need.
