The outpour of generosity has been overwhelming from our community partners. Due to the vast response, our Donation Center has reached its capacity. Bridgeport Rescue Mission will temporarily suspend clothing donations beginning January 18, 2022. Bridgeport Rescue Mission’s Donation Center will enter a 90-day moratorium which will allow us time to distribute our current inventory and establish a partnership to help continue meeting the clothing needs of our community. Thank you for your ongoing commitment to those who turn to Bridgeport Rescue Mission for help.
Naming Bridgeport Rescue Mission in your Will is perhaps the easiest way to ensure your legacy of caring for the homeless and less fortunate in our community continues beyond your lifetime.

Bob Fiscus has been involved with the Mission since mid-2002 when he first learned about our work from a board member.Bob later joined the Mission’s Board of Directors and served as Vice President and then as President.He has been faithful in his giving to the Mission because he believes we are in the business of turning people’s lives around. “It’s beautiful to watch the transformation of those who come to the Mission…they walk through the doors broken but leave restored,” he says.Bob has put the Mission in his Will because he wants to see the work of the Mission continue for years to come.
Coleman and Olive Harbor recognize that everything they have comes from the Lord, so for them, planned giving is simply giving God what is already His.Olive’s best friend, a long-time Mission donor, named the Mission in her Will and encouraged Olive to do the same.Because of their compassion for those in our community who are homeless and hurting, Olive and Coleman have designated a proportionate sum of their estate to Bridgeport Rescue Mission.
