Rescue Mission Gets $10K from Bank of America

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Bank of America Charitable Foundation recently awarded Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley a $10,000 grant.

The Rescue Mission will use the funding to offer free overnight stays to anyone in need of emergency shelter and provides three full meals daily to the public – a mission it has carried out for 125 years.

“People don’t realize that there are over 100 men, women and children who nightly find overnight shelter at the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley and it isn’t uncommon to serve 300 meals in a day,” said Lynn Wyant, Rescue Mission’s vice president of development. “Gifts like this help to guarantee that the doors will remain open and help us to fund the programs that happen within these walls. We are here 24/7 and anyone in need can find food, shelter, safety and a second chance when they walk in the mission’s doors.”

The grant is part of the first round of grants that Bank of America will provide to local nonprofits this year. This round addressed economic mobility for individuals and families, which includes investing in workforce development, education and basic needs.
