I work at another non-profit that works closely with The Rescue Mission because we serve a lot of the same individuals. I also am a Rescue Mission donor and I shop at the Mission's thrift store. This is a wonderful organization. The staff does a great job. You can tell that they really care about the clients they serve. The Rescue Mission truly gives individuals a "hand up" and provides hope for a lot of struggling people. The residents of the Mission are some really sweet individuals who have been through tough times and it warms my heart to witness how the staff and services of the Mission have helped these guys grow, realize their own self-worth, and become productive members of the community.

Also, I am an avid thrift store shopper. For all you thrift store shoppers out there, you must check out the Mission Store. Great finds, amazing deals, awesome cause. I especially like the furniture section of The Mission Store -- there are a lot of great items.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More widely publicize the awesome programs and thrift store that The Mission has. There are way too many people who have no idea that those things even exist.

I have been a Rescue Mission donor and shopper for the past 4 years. When I first learned about the store I was very interested because I am an avid thrift store shopper. My first trip there was truly an eye opening experience. Not only were the bargains hard to beat, but also I got to witness firsthand how my donations would impact the the community in which the Rescue Mission serves. When leaving the store and turning around the block I experienced such mixed emotion that can only be described as heartbreaking and heartwarming all in the same instant......the line of folks waiting for a warm bed and a hot meal was overwhelming. Well, it's been 4 years since my first visit and now I am monthly regular! I choose to donate & shop at the Rescue Mission because I have witnessed first hand the good that they are doing in our community.

So, do yourself and those in desperate need a big favor.....get rid of the stuff around your home that you no longer need. Bring it down to the Rescue Mission and take that trip around the block......They'll be thankful and so will you!
