LAS CRUCES GOSPEL RESCUE MISSION

Gospel Rescue Mission has May 11 groundbreaking for new facility

Posted

The Las Cruces Gospel Rescue Mission (GRM), will host a groundbreaking ceremony at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 11, for GRM’s new facility “Bethesda – House of Mercy and Grace” at 1050 W. Amador Ave., GRM said in a news release.

“GRM facilities are aging, and as such, new facilities are needed to continue to provide needed food security for our poor and homeless populations,” the news release said. “Replacing these facilities is the culmination of three years of planning to create an 8,500 square-foot facility which will serve to replace the kitchen, create better food storage facilities, create dining halls and to provide an extreme weather shelter for the community’s unhoused population.” 

The Mission provides three meals a day, every day of the year for anyone who needs them and has continued to do this for more than 40 years, GRM said. “We also supply many area food pantries with baked goods, dry goods and seasonal items, and we are a distributor for Roadrunner Food Bank,” the news release said.

Speakers during the groundbreaking will include Mayor Ken Miyagishima and GRM Executive Director Henry Young.

Parking is available at Brewer Oil Company 950 W. Amador Ave.
