Monthly Mission Partners
Monthly Mission Partners (MMP) are the backbone of the Mission’s financial support, and we couldn’t do our work without them. Knowing that we have stable, predictable incoming donations allows us to keep our doors open, stay focused on the community, and make plans for the future. MMP’s keep our lights and heat on, our building insurance paid, and our staff in the building--the long and short of it is you keep us here so that there will always be a place for people in need to go, and we are so grateful.
$10 on the 10th
Every 10th of the month, we have a donation campaign day for $10 donations called Ten On The 10th. $10 doesn’t seem like much, but here at the Mission, a little goes a LONG way! $10 can provide groceries or non-perishables. $10 can provide a week’s supply of baby wipes and diapers for a child in need, hygiene products for families (toilet paper, soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, lotion, toothbrush/toothpaste) all items not available for purchase with a "benefits" card. It also helps us cover the costs of being open, keeps the fridges and freezers running so we can have fresh food for our clients, helps provide heat and A/C so volunteers can go about their work, and all those invisible costs, like insurance and having the gutters cleaned and the parking lot plowed in the winter, that keep our building functional for everyone in need.
WHAT ARE MATCHING GIFTS? Matching gifts are a type of corporate philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations. When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. Companies usually match donations at a 1:1 ratio, but some will match at a 2:1, 3:1, or even a 4:1 ratio. Check with your company to see if they will match your donation. It's an additional gift to HHRM! What a blessing!
Gifts in Memoriam or Tribute
Honor the memory of a loved one or pay tribute to someone who’s touched your life with a gift to the Helping Hand Rescue Mission. All memorial and tribute gifts will be acknowledged with a receipt and also with a letter to the family of the loved one or to the person or family being honored. All gifts are tax-deductible. Thank you for remembering someone special by giving to Helping Hand Rescue Mission. Your gift is greatly needed and appreciated.
Pantry and Family Meal Fund
The Pantry and Family Meal Fund was created to fight food insecurity during COVID-19 and beyond. $45 can purchase a pantry bag for a family. This fund also helps us to restock our pantry, to buy specific supplies for families in need (such as a baby formula specific to a child’s needs) and provide drive-thru hot meals weekly at Huntington Assembly of God free of charge for those in need.
Drew’s Birthday Angels
The Drew's Birthday Angels program provides families with party supplies, cake mix, icing, goodie bags, and a special birthday present that corresponds to a child's interest on the week of the child's birthday. Parents who are struggling to make ends meet often cannot afford a celebration or gifts. Helping with this need is a direct, poignant way to tell families right in our community that we care. Making sure a child has a birthday celebration helps them to grow up with joy in their lives, knowing that they are special, loved, valued, and appreciated. Socioeconomic status should never get in the way.
Seasonal Donation Opportunities
Helping Hand Rescue Mission often starts seasonal or holiday campaigns to meet specific needs in the community. We are so grateful for everyone who donates to provide Easter baskets, candy, backpacks and school supplies, Thanksgiving food, Christmas gifts, and so much more! You can check our main page and our Facebook page for our current giving opportunities! We’re so excited to partner with you.
