From suitcases with wheels to sheet rock, if you have it, Hope Rescue mission says they will take it.

The Mission, which serves the city's homeless and poor is in need of everyday items like milk, coffee, and laundry detergent.

They also need items like light bulbs, umbrellas and storage totes.

Hope Rescue Mission says they try to provide everything they can for their residents to help them get back on their feet.

While some of their requests may seem strange, they say things like your old rolling suit case could make life a little easier for some of their residents. “We have a couple of people with physical disabilities one man just recently lost part of his leg, another woman had heart surgery, so we want suitcases that roll around so it doesn't have to be so strenuous for them. Linda Clevenger, Volunteer Coordinator, with hope rescue Mission says.

Hope Rescue Mission is also asking for construction goods, like drywall, sheet rock and subflooring.

They are converting a storage closet into a prayer room at their men's facility.

Hope Rescue Mission's Family Life Center, on Lafayette, is taking donations.

Used clothing items may be donated to the St. Vincent de Paul where Hope Rescue Mission residents are invited to shop at no charge. Clothes can also be taken to the Goodwill Center where Hope Rescue Mission residents occasionally work.

If you do not have anything to donate, but would like to help, they are looking for volunteers as well.
