Home Opener Dress Down Days

Each year, lots of local schools and companies host a dress down day at their locations. Employess and students make a contribution to the Rescue Mission of Mahoning Valley in exchange for wearing their team colors to celebrate the home opener (while they are at work or school).

This year, both home openers will be held on Friday, April 7, 2023! 

Who doesn't love these three things?

  1. Baseball
  2. Dress Down Days at Work (to celebrate the home opener)
  3. And of course... the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley

It's our seventh year to partner with all of you to raise funds and awareness for the Mission and have a little fun at work!
