With the tour kicking off tomorrow, I thought it best to keep it local. One of the most amazing organizations that you’ve never heard of is where the $1 went today. The Clara White Mission here in Jacksonville is doing amazing work.
It was founded by a former slave whose compassion for her fellow people moved her to action. It has been in existence for more than 100 years, dedicated to serving the needs of the least fortunate in our community. It is the Clara White Mission, and after more than a century of service, we remain devoted to the humanitarian goals pursued so selflessly by our founder.
The Clara White Mission offers more than meals for the hungry and shelter for the homeless. We offer hope and a way out of the misery of a life on the streets. Yes, we provide food and shelter, but we also offer vocational programs to put people to work. Our goal is to restore those in need to meaningful, dignified lives in the community.
