A memorial or honor gift to the Rescue Mission is not only a meaningful way to pay tribute to a loved one, but it will also help care for needy individuals seeking the Rescue Mission for help and hope.
When a memorial gift is received, a personalized card is sent to the family of the deceased telling them their loved one has been memorialized in this special way. If your gift is in honor of someone, we will send him/her a card to let them know of your thoughtfulness.

Ways to Give
Monthly Miracle Partners
Monthly Miracle Partners are a group of caring friends who give monthly, bringing a steady source of hope and help to suffering people in our community. These partners ensure that the Rescue Mission has a regular, dependable supply of income all year. Each time a Monthly Miracle Partner sends in their regular gift, miracles happen!
A nutritious meal can be the first step toward new life for those who are homeless or struggling. But true recovery goes beyond that. Hours of counseling. Learning self-respect and responsibility. Working through a drug recovery program. Acquiring job skills. And most importantly, learning about God’s love and forgiveness.
As a Monthly Miracle Partner, you will no longer receive our regular fundraising letters. Instead, we will send you simple reminders letting you know how your gifts are helping.

Other Ways To Help
If you’d like to serve in ways other than donating or volunteering, one or more of these options — including prayer — might be just right for you.
Organize a Food Drive
Rescue Mission of Utica distributes food boxes to families in need. Each box contains the ingredients for 18 meals, no matter the size of the family. We also provide counseling, advocacy and referrals to help with other critical needs. We encourage families to utilize the food box program, because it is important to keep the family together at home — and not have parents bring their children to the Mission for meals.
We feel that if we can provide the food, along with counseling and referrals, we can keep people living in a safe, healthy environment, thus eliminating homelessness. Tony, a single dad with four kids, says the food boxes are “a blessing from God during hard times. I don’t know how I would provide for my kids if it wasn’t for the program.”
The demand for our food boxes has tripled in the last few years. Please help by organizing a food box drive with your church, business, school or other group.
Organize an Underwear & Sock Drive
Underwear and socks are a necessity of everyday life, yet we never seem to have enough. The Rescue Mission has an urgent need for underwear and socks!
Churches can sponsor an UNDIE SUNDAY.
Corporations, Civic Organizations, Businesses & Schools can sponsor an UNDIE MONDAY.
New, packaged items Needed
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
