Operation RESCUE: Warm Shelter

The Durham Rescue Mission will begin preparations for the sub-freezing temperatures that will begin to settle into the Triangle area Saturday night. The forecast shows nightly lows dangerously in the teens and highs expected to be at or below freezing for the following few days. These temperatures are not suited for anyone to be outside for long periods of time, but those without warm clothing are in especially dangerous conditions. Imagine those that are homeless or without heat bearing these brutal elements alone.

To get ready to take in an unexpected number of needy in the community, the Durham Rescue Mission is asking for the community’s assistance to help provide:

  • Bacon
  • Biscuits
  • Canned black-eyed peas
  • Canned collard greens
  • Eggs
  • Ham
  • Sausage
  • Juices (apple or orange)

These items may be dropped off at the Center for Hope (1201 E Main St) or the Good Samaritan Inn (507 E Knox St). They will be used to provide warm, hearty meals to those affected by the cold weather. Financial donations to help us purchase the food we need may be made here.
