Donations Drive for Rescue Mission

First Free Rockford will be collecting needed items for Rockford Rescue Mission from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday, June 4, in our church parking lot (2223 N. Mulford Road). The mission’s urgent needs are:

  • For men: underwear sizes S-3XL.
  • For women: underwear all sizes, gym shoes sizes 6-10, sanitary pads.
  • Other items: Dixie cups, oatmeal, butter, travel-size shampoo.

Drive to the main entrance and our team will safely collect your items. Please don’t drop stuff off before or after those times, as no one will be there to collect it.

Thanks, and please pass the word!
