Get Involved!

For over 100 years, the support of our community has enabled us to continue meeting physical and spiritual needs in Michigan's capital area. Those faithful gifts make a difference in the lives of hundreds of men, women, and children every year. There are several ways that you can "Be a Rescuer": pray for the Mission and its needs, give financially to support our services, hold a drive or collect items from our needs list, or "Follow" the Mission to help "spread" the word about who we are and what we do.

There are many ways you can "Be a Rescuer" by collecting items we use every day at the Mission. We have signage available for all of these drives, and you can click on each name for a pdf with further information about the drive. While this list is extensive, don't consider you or your group limited. Many of our fellow "Rescuers" have created innovative ways to raise funds or collect items from our needs list. To access a printable pdf version of our Needs List, click here. Please note that we do have supporter event protocols to ensure the good testimony of the Mission in the community. Click here to read those before you begin a drive.

We appreciate your gift to support the ministry of rescue. Checks can be mailed to our administrative offices at 2216 S. Cedar Street., Lansing MI 48910. Giving reports for monetary gifts mailed or brought to the Mission are sent out either monthly or annually. All donors automatically receive their giving report monthly; these are mailed with the monthly newsletter via USPS in the middle of the month following your gift. If you make a notation to receive an annual giving report, you will not receive a giving report the month following your donation. Instead, you will receive a giving report for your total monetary donations for the previous year; these are mailed separately from the newsletter in mid-January.

You can also donate online using the "Donate Now" buttondonate icon. As this process is handled for us by another non-profit, they issue a "receipt" for your use. Either create an account with them or be sure to save the copy of their receipt.

We are so grateful to the many people who selflessly give of their time to help us help others. Last year, we filled nearly 10,000 volunteer opportunities for a total of over 17,000 volunteer hours. Volunteers support us in a variety of ways, from serving breakfast to sorting clothing, and all of them are important. If you are interested in volunteering, we would love for you to check out our available volunteer opportunity descriptions for times which may work with your schedule. (Please note that not all opportunities are available at all times.) If you decide to become a member of "Team Rescue," download and fill out our Volunteer Application and choose your Orientation Date. If your chosen orientation date no longer has space, we will contact you immediately to reschedule. Otherwise, we will send a reminder email with directions on the week prior to your chosen date.

While there are some opportunities for groups, we do ask that you remember that our staff is small, as with many ministries, and we cannot always accommodate large groups (8+), individuals who have a limited availability schedule, or those who call last minute. If your small group is interested in volunteering, only the contact person will be asked to attend a volunteer orientation.
