The Raleigh Rescue Mission was founded to minister to the growing needs of homeless and hurting men, women and children in our community. They have helped more than 750,000 people since being funded in 1961. The Raleigh Rescue Mission offers a long-term recovery program, emergency shelter, safe housing, clothing, and three healthy meals a day, as well as recovery, counseling, free medical care, job and computer training skills, and other support services to help them achieve their goals and ultimately make a successful transition back into the community.
Samuel Cole Salon made it their mission to contribute this holiday season. Employees pitched in and collected $700 for The Raleigh Rescue Mission. With the amount of money collected Samuel Cole was able to buy 23 much needed gifts; newborn and toddler clothing, rattles, pacifiers, toys, bibles, sweaters, shirts, nightgowns, pajamas sets, robes, jeans, a Regal Movie Theater gift card and a Wal-Mart gift card.
It feels so good to have the salon come together for people in need. It was so rewarding to shop for all the presents”, said stylist and fundraising coordinator Cara Dempsey.
