Through our Rescued Treasures Clothing Program, the Frederick Rescue Mission gives away gently-used clothing—donated from the Frederick community—for free to men, women, and children who have a need. We accept all sizes of clothing and shoes.

There are many items we accept; for a complete list, scroll down. **We are no longer accepting furniture or household item donations.

If you would like to support the Mission, please visit our Giving or Current Needs pages.
