There are thousands of people in need in our community.  A 2009 Shasta County Health and Human Services report showed that 14.5% of our local population lives at or below the poverty line.  That’s almost 26,000 people! We’re doing all we can to “break the cycle of poverty” in each of these lives. For some, it starts with a hot meal, for others, a safe place to sleep. At the Good News Rescue Mission, we work hard to get to know each person and uncover their own personal struggles. Then we share with them the tangible love of Jesus Christ and provide the hand-up they need to become all that God intended for them to be.


Below is a list of common needs here at the Mission that help us deliver Christ’s love and assist each person on a path forward with their life.  In most cases, bulk items are preferred.  We appreciate your willingness to help us reach our neighbors with the food, clothing and the care necessary to give them the hope and the hand up they need as they work toward independence.  Thank you for all you do on their behalf.  For any questions, please feel free to call our office at 530-242-5920 and ask for the Development Team.


Donations can be made at our collection/distribution center at 3050 Veda Street.
