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!
