Host a Drive

Hosting a drive is a great way to serve the homeless and make a difference in our community. Drives are welcome throughout the year and your efforts make an enormous difference in our ability to minister to those in need.

There are many creative ways to collect items for the Mission, especially during the holiday season. You can create a new holiday tradition of helping the homeless and changing lives!
