  • Canned fruit
  • Potatoes, onions
  • Oranges
  • Rice & stuffing mix
  • Shelf-stable milk
  • Eggs & butter
  • Canned meats & fish
  • Mayonnaise
  • White & brown sugar
  • Soup

Want to put a smile on someone's face…and food on their table? Feed a family of four for a week! Here's how.

For men and women on the streets, the simple gift of a wool blanket can make a life and death difference. As the weather gets rainier and colder, we want to make sure everyone who spends the night unsheltered has a warm blanket. No one should die just because they aren’t quite ready to come to the Mission yet. Wool keeps you warm, even when it’s wet!

You can buy the exact right kind of blanket at Amazon’s special page for us HERE.


Serve on the Search & Rescue Van

Check on the welfare of people hidden away in the coldest part of the night. Invite them to the Mission for warm, safe shelter and breakfast in the morning. Hand out warm blankets, food, hot drinks and other supplies for those who decide not to come into the Mission. Many volunteers serve regularly, and build meaningful relationships that can lead people to trust the Mission and decide to change their lives. More…
