Start an Item Drive

Are you looking for a way to engage your neighborhood, business, or church? Item Drives meet real needs in support of the Portland Rescue Mission.

Contact our Community Involvement Team to walk through the following steps:

  • Target a program’s particular needs- Shelter, Transitional, Recovery, and Family Life programs
  • Receive a specific list of needed NEW donations that don’t typically come through our regular donation channels.
  • Start your Item Drive with your community, collecting much needed donations!
  • Drop-off your donations at the site that they are serving. (note: if donations are more than a large vehicle worth, a pickup may be scheduled)
