GARY, A DISTRIBUTION CENTER VOLUNTEER OF 13 YEARS
“I really enjoy helping at the Mission because they do such a great job helping those that truly need help. I principally work in the food distribution warehouse. Covid also interrupted my work at the Mission but now I'm back and will continue to volunteer as much as I can. God has called all of us to help those in need. The Mission has many volunteers, and we all work together as a team. I always look forward to coming in on Monday and sometimes will show up at other times when the need arises. For anyone looking to give back for all the blessings in one's own life, I highly recommend joining our volunteer team at the Topeka Rescue Mission.”
CINDY, A BUSINESS OFFICE VOLUNTEER OF 4 YEARS
“As soon as I decided to retire, I started looking around for where to spend my time volunteering. It seemed like everywhere I looked I found out about more of the loving services TRM provides to our community. I could see clearly that God was using this incredible organization to do His work and I wanted to join them. The people I work with here genuinely care about the people they serve, and I can't imagine what our community would be like without them.”

"There was a moment in my life where the scale could have tipped either way and I could be where our homeless friends are. God touched me and I am living proof that there is hope for a better life."
Tina, a new TRM Volunteer
"I have been praying for some time for God’s will and direction in my life. I feel he led me to TRM. Since I am just getting started, I don’t know exactly what that means yet but He does. What I do know is I believe in the work TRM is doing, their mission and their values. I am humbled by the people who work at TRM and their daily dedication to make a difference in people’s lives. I feel blessed just to be a small part of it."
