to Support Las Cruces Gospel Rescue Mission of New Mexico
Las Cruces Gospel Resuce Mission was founded in 1972 by Rev. Darrel E. Bean and is located in the heart of Las Cruces, New Mexico. Originally offering Christian counseling services, coffee and doughnuts to those looking for guidance, The Mission now provides for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the homeless, poor, and needy including food, shelter, clothing and hygiene products, outreach programs, job training and teaches life skills to those who need and want help.
The Mission is unique, as it is the only shelter in Las Cruses that offers Christian guidance, 24/7 emergency food and shelter services, uses no tax dollars and seeks to re-assimilate those who are less fortunate as productive members of society — no matter what their race, color, creed, gender, national origin or disability.
In 2013, ALON selected Las Cruces Gospel Rescue Mission to receive one of four 2013 Ford F-150 pick-up trucks given away that year as part of the Clean 13 “Cars for a Cause” program. The addition of a new truck allowed The Mission to reduce their travel expenses and improve its ability to serve the homeless and the poor in their community by increasing their ability to pick up and deliver donations of clothing and furniture.
In 2012 with only sixty to seventy volunteers, The Mission served over 70,000 meals and gave away 100,000 items of clothing — all which were donated by individuals, churches and businesses. More recently, the Las Cruces Gospel Resuce Mission participated in ALON’s “Load the Code” contest and had a chance to win $30,000 to go towards their always present and evolving needs.
If you’re interested in making a donation to Las Cruces Gospel Rescue Mission you can do so through PayPal or by sending in a check. The Mission will also take drivable and non-drivable cars and trucks off your hands as another way to bring in financial support. If you have extra time to give, The Mission is always in need of volunteers.
ALON is proud to be associated with and to support Las Cruces Gospel Resuce Mission because of the positive impact their dedicated volunteers are making in their community.
