Find a Cause that is Bigger than Yourself
1-800-96-4-FOOD is your toll free Christmas line to the heart of a needy child, a desperate mother, or a homeless man. Please give a gift to the Christ Child, by giving a gift to those whom Jesus called, “the least of these” here on Skid Row.
Christmas is just days away. We need tons of food, warm clothes for children, new blankets for homeless people who sleep on the sidewalks and under bridges, and we need new toys for the little ones. Help us share the love of the Bethlehem baby with lost souls here on these streets.
My late husband, Fred Jordan, the Mission’s founder often said, “When you are facing a problem, find a cause that is bigger than yourself. Become part of something bigger than yourself and your problems.” And friend, I don’t know of any cause that is greater than sharing God’s saving grace with lost humanity, and no cause bigger than caring for the poor. In fact, it is so big that no one of us can do it by ourselves. We need you.
At this Christmas season, I invite you to become part of Fred Jordan Mission’s ministry to the lost, the lonely and forgotten here in the inner city. Something truly wonderful happens when we give ourselves to something bigger than ourselves. To a cause that is greater than our own needs and our own desires. You will never be as big as you can be until you become part a cause bigger than yourself, and find the kind of fulfillment and happiness that God intended for your life.
1-800-964-FOOD is your Christmas line to the heart of someone that needs to know our Savior this Christmas. Or donate through our website, www.fjm.org, you can also mail your donation to PO Box 12345, Covina, CA, 91722.
Join yourself to a cause that will lift you higher and take you farther than you could possibly go by yourself. This Christmas 49 million Americans struggle with hunger, including 17 million children. Please help. It’s almost Christmas.
