MHM Sponsors Building the Bridge Out of Poverty Dinner & Simulation

Corpus Christi, Texas--Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Inc. (MHM) is proud to be a sponsor of Mission 911's annual Building the Bridge Out of Poverty Fundraising Dinner and Poverty Simulation on Thursday, April 30th at 6:00 p.m. at The Summit Church (5801 McArdle Road). Proceeds from the interactive event strengthen Mission 911's programs that benefit the homeless and working poor in the coastal community.

During the event, attendees participate in role-play during a simulation activity where they have the opportunity to experience firsthand the challenges of providing basic necessities for themselves and their families with access to minimal income. While the scenarios and money exchanged during the evening may be fictitious, the struggles and challenges faced by the participants are very authentic. The copyrighted poverty simulation tool is more than a simple activity; it is a glimpse at the hardships those in need encounter every day.

Mission 911 is a nonprofit organization in the Corpus Christi area that is dedicated to helping those in crisis. To learn more about Mission 911 or for more information about the 2015 Building the Bridge Out of Poverty Fundraising Dinner and Poverty Simulation, visit www.ccmission911.org.
