Financial donations are an important component to the overall function of God's Extended Hand Mission. Service wise, we are fundamentally a restaurant that gives free meals. As with any restaurant there are a lot of costs associated with maintaining a facility to do this, and unlike any other restaurant, since we give out everything for free, we can't pay the bills from "profits". Some of the bills we see each month include gas & electricity ($1,200), trash pickup ($600), mortgage ($2,200), water (S600), vechicle costs for donation pickups ($300), supplies ($600), and fees taxes & other ($300), as well as the constant costs of maintenace to keep these old buildings (built in 1875) up and running. Yes, we really need your financial support ! We do our very best to be frugal and exercise good stewartship with the financial blessings we receive - though you. Praise God ! and may He continue to bless you ao that you can continue to bless others in His wonderful name.
