2013 Holiday Charity Partner
This December Payne Wealth Partners teamed up with the Evansville Rescue Mission. Through their Adopt-a-Family program, we have provided holiday needs and wants for the children of four families. As one of our core values is community, we value sharing our resources, time and talents with our local community, and joining charities in their events and programs.
Since 1917, the Evansville Rescue Mission has been following the vision of our founder, Ernest “Pappy” Reveal. Throughout the year, we complete intervening measures to assist homeless men by providing daily meals, shelter, clothing distribution, individual case management, and referrals to other social service agencies. It is our desire to give each man a life plan to better prepare them in finding gainful employment, affordable housing, and mentoring relationships.
Besides these services, the Mission offers preventative measures to guard against homelessness at our other campus locations including Camp Reveal (a 105 acre campground just north of Evansville that hosts summer camp for local children, as well as retreats, reunions, and other gatherings), the Youth Care Center (the Mission’s short-term residency and detention center for boys and girls between the ages of 12-17), and the Evansville Rescue Mission Thrift Store (our thrift store that offers the general public a variety of gently used clothing items, furniture, and appliances for a heavily discounted price).
In addition to these programs, the Rescue Mission offers the local community a variety of provisions throughout the year such as free clothing vouchers, food through the Gobbler Gathering (our annual Thanksgiving food basket giveaway), and Christmas presents through our annual Christmas Adopt-A-Family program.
