MealsProvide meals to feed the hungry men, women and children who come through our doors. For many, the nourishing food served at the Rescue Mission will be the only hot meals they’ve eaten in a long time.
Warm ClothingPeople often come to the Rescue Mission in old, tattered and dirty clothing. The Rescue Mission provides new clothing – including undershirts and socks – so men and women can feel warm, dry and renewed in their journey to recovery.
A Very Merry Mattress PackA clean, comfortable night’s rest is such a gift to a homeless person. Give the Rescue Mission a vinyl-covered mattress, pillows and linens that ensure a good night’s sleep and the chance to finally rest.
Safe ShelterDuring the winter months, homeless people risk hypothermia, frostbite and worse when temperatures dip below freezing. Give a man, woman or child safe, warm shelter and respite from the cold.
Changed Lives at Christmas PackTrue change requires more than food and shelter. Our Men’s Center and Women and Children’s Center give recovering people the resources they need, like classroom materials, job training and counseling to build life skills and get back on their feet.
Shower with Kindness PackProvide towels, shower sandals and personal hygiene items for dozens of people coming off the streets. After they’ve spent weeks living in poor conditions, you can help them clean up and feel refreshed in their journey to recovery.
Job Interview PackMen and women at the Rescue Mission are often starting over – which means they don’t have the clothes or shoes for a job interview. They often need haircuts as well. Help provide the professional look that leads to their future success!
Season's Reading PackFor homeless children and teens, reading a good book often raises their spirits and makes them feel less alone in the world. Brighten a child’s or teen’s life with this pack of books that can open their hearts and minds.
Computers for Christmas PackGive a man or woman the chance to build computer skills as they rebuild their lives. A new computer at the Rescue Mission gives them a chance to learn new programs, create resumes and search for employment opportunities.
Each item in this Christmas Gift Catalog is representative of the needs of the individuals served by San Diego Rescue Mission. Donations may be used to support the area of the Rescue Mission's ministry where the need is greatest.
