Imagine being a child and you’ve never been fishing, swimming, roasted marshmallows around a campfire or done any of the fun things at summer camp.
For many children in need in our community, summer camp is just a dream. But you can change that by sponsoring a camper. There is no fee for children to attend Camp JOY; instead, their camping experience is provided by generous donors at the rate of $10 a day or $50 per child per week.
Thank you for sponsoring a child, for putting a smile on their face, and for changing a life!

It’s hard enough when you are struggling to make ends meet. When you add in oppressive heat and little or no resources to cool down, hot weather can take a deadly toll.
Each year, more people die from extreme heat or extreme cold weather than tornadoes and hurricanes combined.
Here’s how you can help the most vulnerable neighbors in our community. Donate a new or gently used fan to Valley Rescue Mission, 2903 2nd Avenue.
We’ll make sure we get it to those who need it most.

Eight Ways to Truly Help the Homeless
Too often, well intended gifts are converted to drugs or alcohol—even when the “hard luck” stories they tell are true.
The men and women who come through the Mission doors usually have nothing more than the clothes on their back. A simple way to help us help those in our shelters is to donate needed items.
