Christmas Needs 2018

Christmas Needs List Header

It’s that time of year again!! As we make plans for Christmas-season activities at the Topeka Rescue Mission, we need your help with donations of new Christmas items for our guests and for community distribution. It would be helpful to receive Christmas gift donations by December 5th. This allows time for us to get the gift area set-up. However, we will gladly receive donations beyond this date as well. We ask that, for Christmas, gifts be new items and unwrapped.
