BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (CBS42 Community) – During the Thanksgiving season, Tony Cooper tells us that $1.95 means much more than a sponsored holiday meal at The Jimmie Hale Mission. Cooper says that $1.95 can lead to a changed life.
“A lot of people will come to us, not because of our long-term recovery programs, but because they’re hungry or needing a place to stay,” said Cooper. “We begin by addressing their physical needs, which a $1.95 helps sponsor a meal. But at the same time, we have recovery programs. That’s why we get excited about people sponsoring meals for us at a $1.95. That’s affordable for most people. And the return on their investment is the possibility of there their donation helping a person get back to life.”
