Magic City Mission: One week, one thousand


A quick update: We’re leaving in a week, and we’re doing OK on fund-raising and supplies, but …

mcmlogo2.gifFor those just joining us, a team of 11 Birmingham residents will be traveling to Biloxi and New Orleans for a weeklong volunteer trip in November as part of the Magic City Mission. So far, we’ve raised $950 (half of our goal) and received a fair amount of supplies and gift cards.

We’re especially grateful to Southern Progress Corporation, which generously donated $500 to sponsor the trip.

All of it, cash and goods, will go directly to the nonprofit agencies along the Gulf Coast:

The Wish List is bulging with new needs, including toys and tools for Biloxi. You might have the item we need just lying around your house.

How can you help? Help us donate cash or send supplies before Thursday, Nov. 1!

If you have questions, let me know.

Magic City Mission: Make it your mission to help the Gulf Coast.

    ***** in Birmingham, supposedly supports the ***** and other charities, but the staff takes items they want and also offers select merchandise to special customers, specifically a ***** with a profitable antiques business on *****, and a certain *****, who parks her Lincoln Town Car right outside the front door when she shops. Since they play Christian music, and preach in the store, I find it grotesque that so much stealing is going on here. Birmingham, stand up and require “Christian” “charities” to be held accountable for their actions, and to be honest in their dealings. ***** employees and management become so enraged when confronted with questions about this issue that it is obvious they have plenty more to hide than I am even aware of at this time. Someone needs to do a story about this problem. It would get ratings for sure this time of year, as it involves “Christianity”, theft, and greed.
