Sunday Morning Breakfast Mission C'mon!
You've got extra stuff!

C'mon, man.  'Fess up.  Youíve got extra stuff lying around your place just like me.  ďI canít just throw it away.  I spent good money on that in 1997.  Somebodyís got to have a use for it, right?Ē  Yet it sits there untouched year after year. 

Letís break that bad habit!  Iíll help you get rid of that stuff and put it to good use. 

There are many people, especially in the inner city, who are hungry, homeless and trying to get back on their feet.  They could really use your stuff to help them along in their journey.  Itíll be a good thing for your home and for your heart.

 Iíll be collecting small items at all Idlewoodsman gigs and events.  Bring whatcha got!!!!


Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission was founded in 1878 by well-known businessmen John Wanamaker (Wanamakerís Department Store); John B. Stetson (Stetson Hat Co.); W. Atlee Burpee (Burpee Seed Co.); and former Gov. James Pollock.  Since then, they have reached out to the homeless in Philadelphia for more than 130 years, becoming a safe haven for the homeless community by ministering to the mind, body, and spirit of anyone who walks through their doors.  Originally named the Sunday Breakfast Association, the name was changed a few years ago to reflect their expanded services as a Rescue Mission. Rescue Missions are similar to a traditional homeless shelter, but focus on caring for the spiritual needs in addition to the practical needs of people.
