We are happy to accept a variety of new and gently used clothing items and receive them on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are so grateful for the generosity of our partners in the community. Due to the needs of our guests and our limited storage space, we are unable to accept some items, including:
Please note that we are unable to accept used undergarments; we may only receive new underwear, bras and socks.
The Rome Rescue Mission is running short on food items, and is asking for your kindness and generosity to replenish their supply.
