PAGE 5 LIFE AT THE MISSIONWWW.CHRISTMISSIONS.ORG231 GENEVA HWY, ENTERPRISE, AL, 363308AM-5PM | (334) 393-2607 In response to the devastating heatwave affecting our community, the Christian Mission Centersrecently launched the Summer Relief Campaign with the goal of raising $1,000 to purchase boxfans for individuals in need. The outpouring of support from our community has been bothheartwarming and inspiring. Thanks to your generous donations, we have made our first round ofpurchases, acquiring 35 fans and 20 air conditioning units. This was made possible through aspecial deal with Ollie's, enabling us to stretch our funds further and reach more people.The Growing Need for Support As we surpassed our initial goal, we were struck by the overwhelming need that still exists. Manyof our elderly neighbors are on fixed incomes and cannot afford air conditioning. For thosealready struggling with breathing problems, the extreme heat is not just uncomfortable—it can belethal. Our mission is to ensure that at least one room in their homes can serve as a cool, safespace during these scorching months.Extending the Campaign Due to the growing demand, we are extending the Summer Relief Campaign to raise additionalfunds specifically for purchasing window air conditioning units for homebound and elderlyindividuals who qualify. Our goal is to provide these units and have our dedicated ChristianMission Staff personally install them, ensuring that our most vulnerable community membershave a safe refuge from the heat.A Heartfelt Thank You We extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who has supported this campaign thus far. Yourdonations have already made a significant impact, providing much-needed relief to those whowould otherwise suffer in silence. It is through your kindness and generosity that we can continuethis vital work.The Reality of the Heatwave Our community’s elderly population is particularly vulnerable during this extreme heatwave.Many live alone, with limited mobility and no means to cool their homes. Fixed incomes oftenforce them to choose between basic necessities and comfort, leaving them at significant risk. Forthose with existing health conditions, the heat can exacerbate breathing problems and othermedical issues, making the situation even more dangerous. By providing a cool space in their homes, we are not just offering comfort—we are saving lives.The installation of air conditioning units will allow these individuals to breathe easier, sleep better,and maintain their health in the face of this relentless heat.Our Commitment At the Christian Mission Centers, we are committed to serving those in need with compassionand love. The success of the Summer Relief Campaign thus far has been a testament to thepower of community. We are determined to continue this momentum and expand our reach toensure that no one in our community suffers from the dangerous effects of this heatwave.
