"This is not about Valley Rescue Mission at all it is about that 1 and 5 that are below the poverty level. It is about the people that have no place else to turn. So that when people support Valley Rescue Mission, We can take those donations and help the least among us," Mitzi Oxford said, Development Director of Valley Rescue Mission.

For food and toy assistance please bring your child's birth certificate, proof or lack of income, your current utility bills, your mortgage or rent and grandparents must have proof of child custody.
