Long term, he hopes to attend culinary school and return to the Mission as a volunteer -- giving back to help people who are hurting.

We chatted with James as he helped prepare dinner for 300 of our homeless guests.

Many homeless men and women watch their birthday come and go uncelebrated. But not this year.

Birthday Party for the Homeless (Quicktime Version)



On Wednesday, March 30th, we threw a birthday party for over 400 men and women in need.

Friends like you sent in over 500 birthday cards with caring handwritten notes. Our volunteer pastry chef, Lynn, made 400 incredibly delicious cupcakes. Fred Meyer provided gift bags filled with socks, fruit and other helpful items. K-Love 88.7 radio offered New Testament Bibles to anyone who desired one.

Your support brings hope to people who may feel lost and forgotten. Thanks.
