The Bay Area Rescue Mission provides food, clothing, shelter, education, job skill training, and medical assistance to the homeless and needy. It is led by a passionate group of individuals who rely primarily on monetary donations, volunteers, and donated goods (non-perishable food items, bedding, toiletry items) to help those in need.
“We’ve been very pleased with our relationship with The Light Digital. Two years ago we found ourselves in a dilemma. We, like many organizations, knew we needed to get much more involved in digital marketing but really didn’t know how to do it. The Light Digital team has expertise, talent and insights that we don’t have, and we have benefited from their many skills. They are definitely helping us move forward in our digital marketing strategy without having to invest in 1-2 full-time employees.” — Woody Tausend, Vice President of Development
