Kids Drive Cover

There are many ways you can "Be a Rescuer" by collecting items we use every day at the Mission. Below are a few potential drive ideas. We also highlight some ways other kids have helped us help others. Please contact us at 517.485.0145 or, for our current needs, as we don't always have a great need (or available space) to store all the items listed below. Thank you!
