Allentown Rescue Mission, changing lives for everyone
The Allentown Rescue Mission’s “I AM” billboard campaign tells the stories of their graduates, partners, volunteers, and the Clean Team. Each one of the billboards tells the story of someone who has been impacted by the work of the Allentown Rescue Mission.
“I AM” is a slogan used by the Allentown Rescue Mission to demonstrate that everyone is a part of the Allentown Rescue Mission. The featured people on the billboards say “I AM the Allentown Rescue Mission.”
