Mission Will Cruise with New Car

A generous donation helps a 50-year-old shelter in Pajaro.

The Pajaro Rescue Mission scored some new wheels this week, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, Watsonville Police Chief Manny Solano reported.

The mission, at 111 Railroad Ave. in Pajaro, has been assisting the community for 50 years. It provides a full range of services:

  • serves more than 3,000 meals a month
