Last year, the HiWay 80 Rescue Mission in Longview fed 1,400 people and gave gifts to 900 children at their annual Christmas program alone.
The program ended up off-campus as the event “just outgrew us here,” says Gary Crim, volunteer coordinator.
This year, Charm and MyCharmOnline.com are teaming up with HiWay 80 for our Second “Love Bears All Things” Community Drive. Primarily, we would like to help with the underserved (and oh-so-hard-to-shop-for) preteens and teens. The Mission is in particular need of gifts for children staying in the shelter (and other “almost homeless” served in the community) up to age 17.
