Christ the King eighth graders help at Bay City rescue mission

SEBEWAING - The eighth grade class from Christ the King Lutheran School, Sebewaing, traveled to Good Samaritan Rescue Mission in Bay City on Thursday, Oct. 5. After hearing the importance of the mission to Bay City and to the people whose lives are directly impacted by the mission, the students began working together to assemble hygiene packs, which will be distributed by the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission in late October at a food basket giveaway. The students were able to assemble more than 500 kits in two hours. Christ the King has had a working relationship with Good Samaritan Rescue Mission for four years.

“When you take time to listen to the number of lives that Good Samaritan Rescue Mission helps in one year, you reflect on how blessed you truly are to have a hot meal to eat at night and a roof to sleep under. GSRM is working to continue to do these things for those people who cannot afford to do so themselves as well as those people who have experienced a job loss or tragedy and need some support from their community,” said Christ the King Principal David Kaiser.

“We want to thank GSRM for allowing our students to serve them in this manner. Each year, Mrs. Bair and the rescue mission find a new way that we are able to assist them. No matter what task she gives our students to perform - washing walls, organizing pantries, or even yardwork - I stress that the mission is thrilled to have young men and women volunteer their time to complete these duties. It is life-changing to assist organizations like GSRM. I wish more people would experience the satisfaction of helping out the rescue mission,” Kaiser also said.
