Urban Missionary 912 helps provide meals, school supplies to those in need
GPA Intermodal Manager Richard Burkhalter’s local outreach movement started with a walk to work and a loaf of bread. In 2014, Burkhalter and his wife, Erika, moved from Effingham County to downtown Savannah, just two blocks away from historic Forsyth Park. On her way to the office, Erika noticed many people in need of a helping hand. So, the couple began wrapping up sandwiches to hand out along Erika’s route. This was the beginning of Urban Missionary 912, the Burkhalters’ grassroots effort to help the community around them.
