APA members have donated a total of $7,247 to the New Orleans Mission. The donations came in response to a program sponsored by APA prior to its 2010 annual meeting, which was held in New Orleans in May, to benefit the mission.
The mission assists homeless individuals by providing meals, clothing, shelter, and literacy and job-skills training.
Ron Gonzales, executive director of the mission, noted that demands for the mission's services have skyrocketed in recent years. "Your money will provide a warm meal, hot shower, and clean bed for about 1,000 guests," he said.
