Special Announcement

*You may have read an article recently printed in the Observer Dispatch stating that the Rescue Mission is opening a Thrifty Shopper store in the New Hartford Shopping Plaza in spring of 2017.  Please be aware that this is not an endeavor of the Rescue Mission of Utica, but an enterprise of the Syracuse Rescue Mission and all proceeds will support that organization.  The Rescue Mission of Utica is grateful for clothing donations from our community and is committed to providing free clothing to those in need through our “Clothing Closet” located at 218 Rutger Street and is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm.
