SPRINGFIELD RESCUE MISSION BASIC NEEDS LIST
The Springfield Rescue Mission has an ongoing need for specific daily, essential items in order to help the people that we serve. We often take for granted these everyday items, but you can help by providing these much-needed articles to the Mission throughout the year. Donation drop-off hours: Monday through Sunday, 8AM to 8PM, 10 Mill Street, Springfield. Thank you for your generosity and help!
Undie Sunday/Undie Monday
The Springfield Rescue Mission provides safe shelter to hundreds of men each year in our Emergency Shelter, and we’d like to be able to provide each man with a new pair of underwear, socks and t-shirt! We also reach out to homeless and near-homeless men, women and children with new underwear, socks and t-shirts, used clothing, coats and shoes in our Give Away Center. As the weather starts getting colder, donating a new set of underclothing is an easy way to show the love of Christ to someone who has not had a clean pair of undergarments for months. Rebecca Connor at 413-732-0808 x 225, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Local individuals, businesses and churches have participated in Undie Sunday/Undie Monday by collecting new items of underclothing to the Rescue Mission for distribution to the homeless. This basic necessity is often overlooked.
