I had job interview and didn't have a clue what wear, I walked in stuff thrift store in mesa and I asked this lady wearing a Santa claus suit and a beard. She found me a suit that was brand new, shoes, tie, dress shirt and socks. I did get the job and was definitely dressed for the position of office manager. I don't know her name but she was a great help.

Hi my name is Sheryl , I Have been volunteering for RMS for several years now. The reason I continue to volunteer for RMS is their genuine desire to give back to the community, and provide for those in need in every way they can. Their dedication to the work their doing is self sacrificing, and relentless. Every person at RMS has a true heart to help. I am Director of a Ministry that helps the homeless and those in need, part of our developmental program is to teach the to give back as the have been given. So we support RMS because i believe their purpose is one of the few non profits the keep and express the desire to help with out personal gain , Its inspiring

This place is like growing up again the customer service here is genuine when I walk in it feels like I went into a time warp because it feels like home the things they have are things that are long forgotten but are still great to have the sharing of the food to those that are in need is a blessing to us all and then I see the up to date things at that point I realize this is where I am supposed to be...

I am so proud of the Staff and Volunteers at Resurrection Street Ministry. Without their dedication the Veterans, Seniors, Homeless, Group Homes and Families would not be possible. I am honored to be a volunteer part of this great Ministry.

Having been involved with Resurrection since the beginning (2002) it is hard not to take an hour of time to expand on what all the people that have made this journey possible. Without the dedication of the thousands of volunteers that have (and many still are) a part of the team none of the things that have happened, and still are being done.

To think that from a closet in a church building could become a place where millions of people have been given more than 5,000,000 pounds of nutritional food, hundreds of thousand of pieces of clothing, thousands of household items, thousands of rides to Veterans and so much more for free to those in need.

We give praise to the Lord for all that was, is and will be there for those that come to Resurrection Street Ministry, S.T.U.F.F. Thrift Store, RSM Veteran Services, RSM Food Pantry and all the Associate agencies we partner with.

Hi I'm living in Scotland. I had a younger brother who was suffering from lung cancer living on his own in Arizona. We had intended on bringing him home to care for him but the virus got in the way . We couldn't get over there and could not get Jim home we were frantic. Who was going to help him through the toughest time . We found bill berry dont ask me how I'm sure it was meant to be . He fought Jim's corner for us taking him to hospital, getting him into a hospice just being with him with absoluate care and support . Our minds were at least lighter that way.he would not die alone . He then looked after his cremation and gathered any personnel belongings and Jim's ashes and sent them to his family . How do you thank people like this . Amazing that's all.i can say . God bless .

The people who work here are super friendly and helpful. It is a fun place to shop and work. It is kept clean and neat. Improvements/changes are often made. There is always foodstuff at the front of the store for a free help yourself service. The commodities are nutritious. It is always fun to see what will be there. Prices are reasonable on the items for sale. Clothing and other things are clean and neat. It is convenient to my home so I can go there often. I have volunteered there in the past and found it a pleasant atmosphere to be in. Thanks for a job well done.

While volunteering there I immediately noticed everyone’s passion for making a difference. They really get quality food to those in need on a weekly basis. They care for anyone struggling financially they even have special days that seniors and veterans can find essential items available for free. They are gracious and happy to help anyone struggling financial. I witness them giving many homeless individual clothes and or shoes from the store. Word can not describe this blessing.

It’s been a pleasure volunteer here and I am thankful for all the big hearts and hard workIng people I met. Keep up the awesome work everyone. Valerie, Dave, Dan, Bill, Lucky and all the volunteers. Thank you!

Resurrection Street Ministry is doing a fabulous job in provided needed food to the homeless, low income people, and our seniors. Their staff is very dedicated and they take their responsibilities very seriously. Yet you can see that they enjoy serving others and meeting the needs of others. And they supersize their impact and reach through their vast network of volunteers. They are experts at engage their volunteers and getting them actively involving in the packing and delivery or food, but also in interacting with the public. There is an old quote, "People don't care how much you know, until the know how much you care." Resurrection Street Ministry truly has God in their hearts, as they minister to the vulnerable people in the greater Mesa area, in a caring and loving way.

I have volunteered at RSM for about 2 years now and have found that they are are an incredibly caring place to work. Everyone is like family, which in my case was recently tested. My husband passed away 15 days ago and all of my family is out of state. Had it not been for the love and kindness of my co-volunteers I don't think that I could have made it through. It isn't just me either, they show the same love and respect for any and all that come to RSM. I can't even imagine volunteering anywhere else. They are by far the best ever!

As a veteran I am been honored to volunteer for the past 3 years serving those in need. We provide medical transport for our veterans as well as equipment, furniture, or clothing. Also food for our local community is offered over 10 days each month. Knowing that our neighbors will not go hungry puts joy in our hearts

I have been volunteering at the RSM food bank since last February and have increased my time serving because it is such a wonderful option for the community. Every Monday, Thursday and Saturday anyone can come for food assistance from the food bank. Also the 2nd Tuesday of every month is Senior (60+) and Veterans day where they receive full shopping carts of food and paper products. They are involved with veterans and help where needed, including rides to Doctor appointments, household and furniture items, clothing and help with other needs like mobility items. They are very active in the community cooking off site for volunteer projects, veterans and other community projects. The volunteers here are a wonderful group of people, very caring and friendly. I can't say enough good about them.

What an amazing ministry! Every single volunteer is unbelievably kind and caring. It shows in the services provided to those less fortunate. All are treated with compassion and thoughtfulness no matter what tribulations they are going through. Probably the best experience I’ve had in Arizona when it comes to providing hope and essential items for people in need. ❤️
