The Story of a Mouse

When I began working at the City Rescue Mission, nearly 10 years ago, I helped out in the office by processing donations. Every once in a while, a card would arrive with no name. There might be a money order tucked inside a partial envelope with the sticker of this little mouse. It took me a few times to realize this donation was "anony-mouse." This unnamed donor was not the only person to give in honor of this furry, little fellow. Hardly a day goes by that something doesn't come to the Mission, whether it's money or a needed item, that is donated anonymously. These donors, as with most of our donors, don't ask for recognition, but that doesn't mean we don't recognize the importance of their gift. We are grateful to all of our fellow rescuers. Our guests are grateful. Thank you for the difference you make every day in the lives of women, children, and men in need. God bless you!
