On the heels of the virtual Day of DAYS fan event, two Days of Our Lives cast members, Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans, held a virtual Q&A session with their fans earlier this week to raise money for a worthy cause.
Stephen Nichols: Thanks For Giving
“I want to thank everyone who participated in our Zoom call,” Nichols, who plays Steve/Patch, posted in an Instagram video. “We raised about 3000 dollars for the Midnight Mission.”
The Midnight Mission is the longest-running human service organization in Los Angeles. It’s centered in the Skid Row section of downtown L.A. The charity, according to its website, runs “one of the most efficient direct service operations in the country.”
And, now, thanks to Nichols and Evans’ loyal fan base, the organization is able to help even more people. “Normally, many people including myself and Mary Beth and others from Days of Our Lives would be down there, serving meals to the homeless on Thanksgiving,” Nicholas adds. “Now, they’re handing out box meals to anyone who needs one.
“So, your donations will go to providing meals for people who don’t have any way to get a meal.” It’s not just during Thanksgiving that the Midnight Mission could use your help. You can click here to donate. “They’re a great organization,” Nichols says. “Check them out. They do so much good work. Thank you so much.”
“@stephen_e_nichols “Let’s keep giving and doing these awesome chats!” enthuses Steve and Kayla loyalist @kaylascheaffer. ” Helping to feed the homeless and finding affordable ways to give is awesome! TY and MB and Mandy [Deneaux, the event organizer] for THE BEST virtual event I’ve ever been to next to the DofD event last weekend! Much love! Let’s get thru these times together!”
“I’ve supported MM for years,” posted Josh Griffith, former DAYS head writer, current head writer, The Young and the Restless. “A blessed organization. Thanks for sharing this.”
“Thank you Stephen for all the countless years you have worked to help those people who are homeless and food-deprived,” posted @sherry_mccutcheon. “We should all work as hard as you to help people. 🥰.”
“Very glad to help The Midnight Mission,” adds @hilaryelizabeth9. “It was a really fun zoom! Happy Thanksgiving, Stephen and Lisa. ❤️.” Check out Nichols’ full post below. Days of Our Lives airs weekdays on NBC. Check local listings for airtimes.
