Tuesday, December 1, 2015, is #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back to our community!

For every $2.05 you contribute to the Durham Rescue Mission, you’re helping to provide a meal for one of the over 400 men, women, and children staying at the Durham Rescue Mission!  There are several ways you can give back:

  1. This year, PayPal is sponsoring a Guinness World Records attempt for the most money raised in 24 hours on #Giving Tuesday.  You can participate in this record attempt and give to the Durham Rescue Mission by donating with PayPal.  In addition to the world record attempt, PayPal will donate 1% of your donation of $10 or more to the Durham Rescue Mission beginning December 1st through the 31st.
  2. Another great option for shopping online is AmazonSmile, a simple and automatic way for you to support the Durham Rescue Mission at no cost to you. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.  To learn more visit smile.amazon.com/about or to start donating 0.5% to the Durham Rescue Mission today visit smile.amazon.com/ch/58-1482590.
  3. With Christmas just around the corner, you can get involved by donating unwrapped toys for our Christmas Community Dinner and Toy Giveaway on December 23, 2015!  You can drop off your toy donations at 1201 E Main St or 507 E Knox St in Durham or have them shipped to us.

So whether it be donating through PayPal, shopping AmazonSmile, or donating toys, there are a lot of ways you can get involved in #GivingTuesday! Giving back to help our community starts with a simple act of kindness!




Encouragement from Shaunda
I encourage anyone who is struggling with addiction to consider coming to the Durham Rescue Mission.
The Mended Life of Walter Cole
I had tried everything but God to overcome my addictions. Then I was referred to the Durham Rescue Mission.
A Blessing for Karen Ramsey
When I came to the mission, I was broken mentally, physically, and spiritually. I was blessed to go through the Victory Program.
