COVID-19 Emergency Needs

 

In light of Coronavirus challenges, the Milwaukee Rescue Mission is collecting emergency supplies for food baskets and hygiene kits to be distributed to families in need in our area — as well as serve the influx of those coming to us while many public places and day shelters are closed. Can you help?

Please consider making a donation to help ease the hunger and fear that our struggling neighbors are facing. Any questions can be directed to us by email at info@milmission.org or by phone at (414) 344-2211. Thank you for providing hope during this challenging time!
