Current Needs and Non-Cash Giving

Non-Cash Gifts are those donations other than financial which could benefit a homeless person or family in their struggle to better their living situation.

Items that we receive are:

  • Given to guests staying at the Rescue Mission at no cost.
  • Made available to the needy in our community.
  • Used to help us provide services and programs at the Rescue Mission.
  • Shared with other like-minded agencies, service providers and groups when a surplus exists.

 

Many supporters are generous with their giving. We recommend you itemize and give a dollar value to your items prior to making the donation.
