FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Rescue Mission received a large donation today thanks to fundraising efforts.

Beckman Lawson partners and employees donated more than $16,000.

Those from the law office reached out to family and friends and raised money in unique way.

Craig Patterson with Beckman Lawson says its a good feeling knowing they're going to be helping out people right here in our community.

"This one is directed towards the Rescue Mission," Patterson said. "So it's for people who don't have a home and they need a place to sleep. So the more beds that we can provide for the people that need them, the more we want to keep doing this."

Patterson says combined with last year they've now given more than $34,000 back to the community.
