Watch out Eagles!  Orange County Rescue Mission is coming for your Super Bowl Championship title!  Okay, maybe not quite the Super Bowl, but the Rescue Mission held its own in the Paper Football Challenge! The winning score was by six year old Kayla, pictured above.

Several Rescue Mission families represented Orange County Rescue Mission at the Tustin Community Foundation’s Paper Football Challenge!  This unique event, held at a Tustin Middle School, gives members of Tustin-area nonprofits the chance to win money by flicking paper “footballs” across tables.  What a fun way to win money for great causes!
