Contribute to the Cause
What is your favorite thing about the Rescue Mission? What does the Rescue Mission do or offer that you are most passionate about? Maybe it’s the fact we feed over 800 meals a day to the hungry of Pierce County, or the Youth program with all of the love that is poured into children daily. The New Life Program makes life transformational changes in clients where the good news of Jesus is centered in everything. Our Family Campuses offer parenting, finance, Bible, management, and life skill classes. Every day at the Rescue Mission it’s not unlikely to find families moving into safe housing, excited hands holding a high school diploma for the first time, or a cold client climbing into a safe, warm bed for the first time in months. There are many great programs the Rescue Mission offers to changes lives. Please consider becoming part of them and more involved in someone else’s life by this simple and easy way to help contribute directly to the causes of the Rescue Mission. The Need-A-Break Program Donations Center partners with the local Value Village in order to be efficient and effective with the donations we receive from the community. It needs your help to spread the word.
First off, all donations are processed by volunteers where all of the best and most useful donations are plugged in right away for those in need. Our men’s and women’s clothing goes directly to the downtown campus clothing room where clients are able to easily find correct sizes. The Children’s clothing stays in the warehouse in our area designated as our children’s clothing bays and families at our campuses are made aware when clothing is available for them to meet their children’s needs. Useful household items, blankets, dishes, sheets, pots and pans, small appliances, and towels are stocked in the hospitality area in the warehouse where clients who find themselves unable to supply the household items themselves are able to be blessed by the donations and help make their house a home. Increasingly, donations such as sleeping bags, jackets, umbrellas, toiletries, and much more are stocked and distributed daily to clients in need.
When there is an in abundance of donations, meaning the clothing rooms are fully stocked and items have been sorted through to make sure we keep the best for those that need them, we are able to take surplus items to Value Village. Value Village pays us for the clothing that we deliver to them. When items are of no use to the clients or any Rescue Mission facility, They also take the miscellaneous donations. These payments, in return, go directly to the Rescue Mission. This partnership is very valuable for multiple reasons. We do not have the resources to store all of the unneeded donations we receive and the Value Village partnership allows us to be effective and continue to serve our clients with the resources we do have. We keep all of the best donations and make sure our clients always come first, and only in abundance do we deliver to Value Village. The funds we receive are contributed to the many programs at the Rescue Mission. This partnership allows the entire community to easily contribute to the Rescue Mission and bless all those in need.
Please consider the many benefits that come from your donations of clothing and other items to the Rescue Mission. It’s a great way to help contribute to the many programs we have to help the hurting and homeless of Pierce County.
