Minivan Damages Local Mission’s Thrift Store
Orlando, FL – A minivan has crashed into the front entrance of the Orlando Union Rescue Mission’s (OURM) Thrift Store. The incident happened Wednesday morning around 10:15 at OURM’s Bargain Store. OURM has released the following statement:
A customer of the OURM Bargain store lost control of her vehicle and crashed through the entrance of the store. Three customers in the store suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to a local hospital. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the individuals and families affected.
President & CEO Freddy Clayton said “we are relieved that no one was apparently injured seriously, and we thank God for that. The timing of this incident is especially difficult. The Mission ordinarily experiences a slowdown in donations during the summer, and both the expenses of repairing the facility and the lost revenue from the temporary closing of the store will cause significant financial hardship.”
Founded in 1948, the Orlando Union Rescue Mission is a 501(c)(3), faith-based organization providing food, shelter, clothing, and rehabilitative programs to destitute and homeless men, women, and children. www.ourm.org
