Rescue Mission Needs Donations

NORFOLK -  The extremely cold weather of the past month has brought more people to the Norfolk Rescue Mission.  Pastor Will Perrigan says more than 30 people stay at the Mission almost every night, and the population is more transient than usual because of the cold.  Perrigan is asking the public to help out during this time of extreme cold. He says cash donations are needed to help pay the utility bills, but the Mission also needs food for the pantry, meat for the freezer, paper products and laundry and cleaning supplies.  Perrigan says donations can be mailed to, or dropped off at, the Norfolk Rescue Mission, 111 North 9th Street. Anyone with questions about the Mission and its current needs can reach Perrigan at (402) 371-6484.
