Dinner & A Movie

Making hope tangible for homeless youth and impoverished families.

Last Friday, was a busy day at D&M. We started off by celebrating Easter with a brunch. The kids enjoyed dying eggs, participating in an egg hunt and each received a basket. Unfortunately, in the midst of all this joy one of our young moms was suffering from extreme depression. In December, Rylie was diagnosed with a chronic illness. It is rare and painful. Since then she has not received any treatments that have helped. She is the single mother of a 6 year old boy. The continued pain is taking its toll. On top of this the one year anniversary of her father’s death just past adding to her emotional pain. Though we cannot fix her illness or bring her dad back. We are there to listen, counsel and support her. We are her family.

In addition to all this we had one young mother deliver a healthy baby boy. She and her boyfriend made the tough decision to put their son with an adoptive family. This decision brought a great deal of turmoil and sorrow to their hearts. They too needed our emotional support.

In these tough economic times D&M is running on empty. We need your help to continue to support these families and so many more. Please make it possible for D&M to continue help those in your community who are in so much need.

Make a donation – Funds will be used to provide for the physical and emotional needs of impoverished families and homeless youth. Donations can be made at www.dinnerandamoviepdx.com or PO Box 28237, Portland OR 97228.

Become a Champion - Each champion partners with D&M with a $50 (or more) per month donation. The donation makes it possible for us to continue to sustain mentors for these families.

Spread the word – Please help light the grass on fire by forwarding this to friends, family and co-workers. I have attached our brochure for those who might not know about D&M already. The more supporters we have the greater good we can do for those we serve. Let’s make change possible!

We are looking forward to a wonderful feast during our Tuesday night meal. On Friday we will be having a brunch, dye Easter eggs and have an egg hunt for the kids. For many of the over 40 families we serve this will be the only celebration they get. At the end of the day we would like to have Easter baskets for each of the kids. We need your help to do this.
