Garden City Rescue Owner plans to close on building by end of year
AUGUSTA, Ga. - Garden City Rescue Mission will soon have a home all its own. After the owner of the Fenwick Street property died, the organization needed $495,000 in order to buy the land it once leased for free.
Executive Director Patrick Fiestel told the Augusta-Richmond County Commission Tuesday that fundraising efforts have exceeded the mission’s goals. Plus, that he plans to close on the property by the end of the year.
The shelter houses up to 60 men every night, assisting with long-term recovery from substance abuse and helping them grow in their faith.
