Donating Goods to Springs Rescue Mission Donating Goods to Springs Rescue Mission

Donate Goods

Noticing a stockpile of canned foods? Keep seeing an old jacket that doesn’t fit anymore?

While these can take up space in your cabinets and closets, for our neighbors experiencing homelessness, they can mean survival. Your generous donation of goods provides hope for those who need it most – the hope that others care about them.

Small gifts can make a big difference.

Helping Homeless in Colorado Springs with Donations in Kind
“In winter, when the weather turns too cold, I come to Springs Rescue Mission for shelter, meals, and warm clothing. I’m glad Springs Rescue Mission is here, they’ve given me direction and the support I need to eventually get off the streets.”

– Nina
