October is one of the most fun months at the Mission! It's when we partner with our friends in the community to raise donations to purchase undergarments for our clients staying with us at the Mission. Local companies, churches and groups of all kinds also collect new undergarments for our guests by hosting collection drives.
Last year, the Mission sheltered 760 different men, women and children. Many times our guests arrive with nothing except the clothing they are wearing. What a joy it is to be able to offer our guests a shower, clean bed and new undergarments and clothing.
If you would like to help, we will be collecting the following new items during SOCKTOBER:
- boxer briefs for men
- plain t-shirts for men, women and children
- underwear for ladies
- underwear for children
- bras for ladies
- socks (this is the lowest current need on the list)
And if you decide to participate, please let us know! Give our Mission Ambassador a call at 330-744-5485 or email CEckman@RescueMissionMV.org we would love to share what you are doing on our social media.
Thanks so much!
