With the number of people in financial distress, shelters are struggling to provide assistance. Raleigh Rescue Mission houses over 100 homeless men, women and children, and provides basic assistance to many other “near homeless”. Last year, the shelter donated over 2,000 cold weather items to the needy; but this year their supplies are low. With winter coming up, it will only get worse.
How Can You Help?
You can drop off at our firm new or gently used winter coats, gloves, scarves and hats, and blankets no later than 11/21/10. Checks (payable to Raleigh Rescue Mission) or gift cards from Wal-mart, Sam’s Club, grocery or discount stores are also appreciated. We will coordinate delivery of these items to the Mission.
