Yet the President found that with rough sleeping and homelessness rising, food prices rising, budgets falling, with demand for their services up by a third on last year, their normal harvest stockpiles of things like baked beans and razors were already running low. The Mission depends entirely on voluntary donations for their vital work of feeding, showering, clothing and guiding the increasing number of homeless.
