A Vernon company is rallying behind an organization that helps people in need.

AJA Delivery is holding a fundraiser for the Upper Room Mission today from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“All money from delivery fees and tips will be donated to the mission,” said Ann Cotton, AJA delivery.

Proceeds from the company’s casual Friday will also go towards the mission’s outreach program.

Cotton says the mission is vital for residents who are needing a hot meal or access to other services.

“When I was a young mom, I used the mission,” she said.

“I’m amazed at how much it has grown. The need in the community is great.”
