Volunteering at the Rescue Mission is a great way to give back to El Paso. Our volunteers directly support the Mission by volunteering in our kitchen, donations center, creating food drives and fundraisers, and by hosting festivals with us. One of the great things about volunteering is building friendships with our residents and staff. We are blessed by the joy and the love that people like you bring to our Mission. We do also verify hours for community service.
