Christmas Initiatives at the Miami Rescue Mission
Electrical engineer and entrepreneur William Pino of Miami, Florida, has extensive experience designing lighting systems for outdoor applications. Most recently the president and CEO of the Main Street Engineering, William Pino has dedicated his time and resources to supporting the Miami Rescue Mission.
In operation since 1922, the Miami Rescue Mission is dedicated to serving the homeless in Miami, Hollywood, and Pompano Beach. The organization’s facilities in Miami can accommodate 390 people through its emergency and residential programs. Additional programs in Hollywood and Pompano Beach can accommodate another 366 people.
Each Christmas, the Miami Rescue Mission begins an initiative entitled Hope to the Hungry that funds meals served during the holidays as well as the mission’s programs. By making a donation, supporters are assisting the organization’s efforts to meet the basic needs of people who are homeless as well as investing in long term solutions to homelessness.
In addition, the mission also hosts a large Christmas luncheon. The 400 families that attended the luncheon received a hot meal, a bag of toys, hygiene products, and a Christmas tree.
