Your Donations Help!

Your gifts of clothing, household items, linens and other items go directly to those who need them.

At Raleigh Rescue Mission, we treat each guest with the respect every child of God deserves. That means we never give out items of clothing that we wouldn’t be willing to wear ourselves.

Don't have time
to collect items?

Your donation will be used right away to provide what's needed most.


Please view our Accepted Donations List for more information about items we accept.
