Help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

UPDATE: Due to recent announcements from the North Carolina governor and best practices from the CDC, the Durham Rescue Mission is currently accepting new check-ins between the hours of 12:00 PM–5:00 PM seven days a week. Prospective clients will be going through enhanced screening before being allowed in the Rescue Mission.

The Center for Global Health recently announced that our nation’s homeless population is at double the risk for contracting and spreading the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The Durham Rescue Mission is currently sheltering around 450 men, women, and children who are living in close quarters. Of course, the Rescue Mission staff is concerned about the possibility of an outbreak among its clients. If that should happen, the Rescue Mission could not close its facilities because its clients would not have any place to go! The Rescue Mission thanks the Lord that so far it has not had any clients or staff affected by the COVID-19 coronavirus—and wants it to stay that way!

As a preventative measure, the Rescue Mission is diligently sanitizing its facilities and providing hand sanitizer in public areas. However, the Rescue Mission has been unable to purchase additional hand sanitizer due to its scarcity. The Rescue Mission’s current supply will run out soon, so it is asking the public to purchase extra, if it finds any, to share with the clients! Donations may be dropped off at the 1201 E Main St location. In addition to hand sanitizer, the Rescue Mission also needs an adequate supply of disinfectants, face masks, gloves, non-perishable food items, soap, toilet paper, and wipes to protect all who turn to the Rescue Mission for help as well as all who work and volunteer.

Also, the Rescue Mission is asking that the public share this need with their family and friends so they, too, can be on the lookout for the supplies the Rescue Mission needs!

Again, the Rescue Mission is taking the health concerns of its clients, staff, and volunteers seriously and is being proactive to limit their risk. Help the Rescue Mission fight the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus by spreading the word it needs hand sanitizer and the other items list above!

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Durham Rescue Mission is asking for donations of any of the following items.
