The Story

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.

Thanks again to all of you who donated to Gift A Lift Mobile. I delivered 1,852 passes to 15 Place last week and they are so appreciative for what you have done. Those passes will help them for a whole year. I am thankful for each one of you.

Thanks to each of you who donated to Gift A Lift Mobile. We have reached our $2500 goal!!!! That is a lot of bus passes. Meeting with 15th Place this week to get the passes to them.  Thank you for caring and helping people who depend on public transportation. This will help them get to the places they need to go.  This makes me so happy.  Thanks again.
