Rescue Mission Food Drive Announced!

Posted On On: October 13, 2015 Categories Filed Under: Member News

The Rescue Mission Food Drive , a partnership between Bethesda Mission in Harrisburg , Water Street Mission in Lancaster , and York Rescue Mission will begin on November 1 and continue until December 20.  This holiday season alone, over 65,000 meals will be provided to hungry families at your local rescue missions, but that is just the beginning.  Each meal is an opportunity to inspire hope and fuel recovery in each individual served.  Our goal is 225,000 pounds of food!  Here are two simple and important opportunities for you to help.


First, collect food!  Fill a bag with non-perishable food items (no glass containers please), and then drop it off at any of the following locations:  Your local rescue mission, any Turkey Hill Minit Market, M&T Bank or Sharp Shopper in Lancaster, York, Dauphin, or Cumberland Counties.  Your donation will go to the Mission that serves your county.  Visit  for additional collection points, suggested food items and more information.


A second opportunity is to send a financial gift to your local rescue mission.
