Give A Lift Mobile is raising money for bus passes to give to 15 Place, a day shelter that provides social services, including housing, employment, and healthcare, to the homeless in Mobile. A donation to Give A Lift Mobile will help someone get to the doctor, a job interview, work, grocery shopping, or to appointments for services and housing to get back on their feet. A bus pass is so simple, but it is a lifeline to people who need it.
Here is the story from The Southern Rambler about Grace, Gratitude and Family on the Public Buses in Mobile
It only cost $3 for a daily pass, but there are some people in Mobile who can’t afford it. 15 Place gives transportation to their clients, but funding for bus passes is limited and there are never enough, so clients have to put off appointments until they can get a ride or a pass.
We rode the buses for months getting to know the riders, who they are and why they ride, and wrote a story about them in The Southern Rambler. We found a community of grace and gratitude on the bus that supports and takes care of each other.
