Remembrance of Mr. Bruce Graves
On October 3rd, 2009, South Florida lost an individual who was truly remarkable, Mr. Bruce Graves took pride in our community and it showed. A Miami-Dade Transit Bus Driver and owner of Best Choice Catering, Inc., Mr. Graves loved to cook, feed others and serve the less fortunate. He was often found gathering a group together to feed the homeless, or going out on his own, after his own catering events to feed the homeless.
Because of his hard working, loving and caring nature, the Miami Rescue Mission would like to honor him by inviting his family, friends and coworkers to come together as one voice to ensure â€œNo One is Homeless.â€
Guests will meet at the Miami Rescue Missionâ€™s Center for Menâ€™s dining room and will volunteer to help feed the formerly homeless residents who call the Center home. Volunteers are also invited to bring donations which will help those homeless men, women and children currently transforming their lives.
Quesha Swain, friend of Mr. Graves said, â€œWeâ€™re so glad for the Miami Rescue Mission taking part in keeping Bruceâ€™s memory alive. Thank you for helping us celebrate this great man and his endeavors to give back to the community as we promote the No One is Homeless Campaign.â€
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:
