Feel God’s presence as we feed the poor and provide hope

One man’s journey to serve the community he lives and works in has brought food and hope to those most in need.  You might know him as the “Capital City Rescue Mission Guy”, but his name is Dan Jason and what he does weekly to feed and serve the poor has a big impact.  He got involved to give back.  “God has blessed me and I have benefitted from his help during tough times in my own life and now I am grateful to be able to pay it forward to help my fellow brothers and sisters during their time of need.”

Not only at the holidays, but throughout the year there are many people who go hungry each day.  The Capital City Rescue Mission feeds the body and soul of 110-130 guests each night.  Dan and his team of volunteers help prepare meals, assist with the set up of the dining room, pre-load food trays as well as facilitating a variety of jobs to clean up and make sure everything is set for the following morning.

“I feel so grateful to be able to serve the guests and it feels so good to put a smile on their faces through a hot meal.  When I went to CCRM for the first time I could really feel Christ’s presence as He is alive there”.  Living out Matthew 25 has been part of Dan’s calling and he feels blessed by the experiences and relationships he has established with other volunteers and especially with the clients who are working to get their lives back on track.

If you feel the same calling to feed the hungry you can get involved today by signing up for a St. Pius X night at the Mission or going onto the CCRM website: capitalcityrescuemission.org to find an evening to volunteer.
