The Las Cruces Gospel Rescue Mission (GRM) will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 11 for GRM’s new facility “Bethesda – House of Mercy and Grace” at 1050 W. Amador Ave ., GRM said in a press release.

“The GRM facilities are aging and as such, new facilities are needed to continue to provide the necessary food security to our poor and homeless populations,” the press release said. “The replacement of these facilities is the culmination of three years of planning to create an 8,500 square foot facility which will be used to replace the kitchen, create better food storage facilities, create dining areas and provide shelter from extreme weather conditions for the homeless population of the community. ”

The Mission provides three meals a day, every day of the year, to anyone in need and has continued to do so for more than 40 years, GRM said. “We also supply many area food pantries with baked goods, dry goods and seasonal items, and are a distributor for Roadrunner Food Bank,” the press release reads.

Speakers at the inauguration will include Mayor Ken Miyagishima and GRM Executive Director Henry Young.

Parking is available at Brewer Oil Company 950 W. Amador Ave.
