Donations of Clothing & Household Goods
SPECIAL SOCK DRIVE THROUGH SEPTEMBER 3, 2012
READ ABOUT IT!
The Fresno Rescue Mission uses donated clothing and household goods to help homeless and at-risk men, women, children and families. We continue to give away items as needed to our guests and to those in the community who have a specific need. In addition, excess items are sold in our new Fresno Rescue Mission Thrift Store and Cars. All proceeds go right back to helping the same homeless and at-risk individuals who also receive free goods from us.
