Richmond Elks Hits One out of the Park for Women, Kids at Local Shelter

Richmond, Calif. (July 1, 2015) — The Richmond Elks Lodge #1251 is making it possible for the women and children staying at the Center for Women & Children at the Bay Area Rescue Mission to go to the Oakland A’s baseball game on July 1st.

Attending a baseball game is a great way to regain a sense of peace and stability for women and children who are overcoming obstacles in their lives. The Richmond Elksare providing tickets and transportation for 40 to spend a day in the sun and leave their cares behind.

At the Mission, these expression of compassion goes a long ways to show that the community cares about women and children in need. It takes a team effort to provide a safety net that provides an environment to heal, make necessary plans for the future and to get reestablished in the community.

Since 1965, the Bay Area Rescue Mission, a Christian non-profit organization, has been changing lives for a brighter tomorrow through emergency shelter, meals, recovery programs, spiritual counseling, education, job skills training, transitional services, youth intervention, food pantry, resource distribution, and mobile outreach. To help the Bay Area Rescue Mission bring help and hope to Richmond’s homeless and hurting, please visit the Mission’s website at, or call 510-215-4555.
