There are so many ways you can make a difference in our community. By supporting the Mission, you can impact the lives of people in need through more ways than one.

Here are 5 easy ways you can help change the lives of people struggling with homelessness by partnering with Fort Collins Rescue Mission and Harvest Farm.

1) Volunteer Your Time and Skills 


2) Start Your Own Fundraising Page for the Mission 

Did you know you can customize your own fundraising page to raise funds for Fort Collins Rescue Mission? You can set up your own fundraiser with a custom landing page and fundraising goal in just a few minutes.

You could give your birthday, ask friends to give for another special occasion, celebrate a milestone, and more! Every dollar raised contributes directly to providing shelter, support and life-changing programs to those experiencing homelessness.

Here are some ideas for hosting your own fundraiser: 

  • Set a clear goal: Determine how much you want to raise and share that goal with your supporters. 
  • Personalize your story/fundraising page: Share a compelling story about why you’re passionate about Fort Collins Rescue Mission’s work (Checkout our Stories of Changed Lives for more stories you can share).  
  • Update your fundraising page with your progress: Your custom fundraising page offers you the ability to add updates to your fundraising journey as you go, letting supporters know how close you are to your goal. 
  • Promote your fundraiser: Share your fundraiser on your social media platforms and encourage others to join you in changing lives.

3) Host a Clothing Drive 

4) Nourish Hope With a Food Drive

Other than clothing and shelter, food is the number one thing we provide to people who come to us for help. You can help by organizing a food drive to gather non-perishable food items our chefs can use to serve nourishing meals to thousands of hungry people every day.

To ensure a successful food drive: 

  • Let us know about your food drive: Contact us online to let us know about your drive and how we can support you.
  • Partner with friends, family and local organizations: Collaborate with anyone in your network to make the most of your drive.
  • Suggest types of food that are most needed: Non-perishable food items have the longest shelf-life and can be used in a variety of situations. This may include things like canned goods, dry pasta, rice, beans, and more.
  • Drop-off all the donated items: Coordinate with us to drop off your donation at Fort Collins Rescue Mission.

5) Fundraise On Facebook

These are just a few of the many ways you can help people experiencing homelessness by supporting the life-changing work of Fort Collins Rescue Mission and Harvest Farm. Whether you’re volunteering your time, starting a fundraiser or even organizing a clothing or food drive, you’re making a real difference in people’s lives.
