The Lozano Buchely Foundation & Gerdau Company will pass out over 130 personalized book bags filled with back to school items for the ‘at-risk’ youth in the Miami Rescue Mission’s aftercare program.

In anticipation of the upcoming school year, the Miami Rescue Mission welcomes an amazing donation that will benefit those children in our community who need it the most.

Miami Rescue Mission Community Development Associate, Melissa Singh said of the donation, “This is so wonderful to see because I know these children really do need the book bags and supplies. Being able to go to school with a brand new book bag that is personalized will bring many smiles to these students who work so hard each and everyday for their education.”

In an official statement, the Lozano Buchely Foundation & Gerdau Company said, “We have the need to give back a little of what God gives us everyday. By getting involved in this kind of event, we spiritually grow and we find out how truly blessed we are… We are excited, full of joy and we are looking forward to make this event a real treasure for everyone involved.”

Since 1922 the Miami Rescue Mission (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) Centers have served the homeless and needy men, women, and children of Miami. Every day the organization provides food, shelter, clothing, education, job training, spiritual direction and long-term rehabilitation programs in Miami, Hollywood and Pompano to nearly 1,000 homeless on a daily basis. The mission also has at-risk after-school and summer day camp youth programs. The Miami Rescue Mission started reaching out to the homeless in Broward County in 1992 and in 1997 the Broward Outreach Center in Hollywood was opened. Then in 2002 the Broward Outreach Center in Pompano Beach was opened to serve the homeless in the north end of Broward. For additional information go to: or
