This is a news release from Mission at the Cross
The Mission At The Cross will hold our 2nd Annual 5K Run & 2 Mile Walk on Saturday, June 27nd at 8:00 AM beginning at the Mission located at 324 South Magnolia Street in Laurel. This event is a fundraiser for the Mission which provides housing, food, vocational training and biblical teaching and instruction to homeless men and men of addiction. Since December of 2008, over 700 men have called the Mission "home" at some point in their lives. We can house up to twenty-one men and generally are full to capacity on any given night.
Should your news organization desire to interview our Director, Mike Shirley, or our House Leader Roger "Tuck" Tucker regarding the incredible service we provide, we would be happy to schedule interviews. In addition, you are welcome to interview some our of current residents of the Mission to get their "take" on how the Mission is helping them get their lives turned around. The Mission operates totally on donations, grants from philanthropic organizations and fundraising. We do not accept government funds at Mission At The Cross. Please feel free to contact me at 601-649-1977 Ext. 1704 with any questions you may have or to schedule interviews. Also, be sure to see us on Facebook at Mission At The Cross Laurel, MS and read some of the many stories of the men whom we have had the honor of getting to know. Lives changes, families reunited and men who have come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ are what we are all about.
