Bridgeport Rescue Mission Sleeping Bag & Bedtime Bag Project

Thank you for turning your compassion into action this holiday season! Click here for details on how you can help...

Bridgeport Rescue Mission needs willing hands and giving hearts to spread the miracle of Christmas throughout coastal Fairfield County. 

You can ease the burdens and uplift the spirits of our homeless and hurting neighbors...

...Give a Sleeping Bag We need hundreds of sleeping bags (adult size) to bring comfort and warmth to the homeless and working-poor of our community.  Adults and kids alike will receive their very own sleeping bag at our Sleeping Bag Give-Away event on December 15.

Fill Bedtime Bags for Children Youngsters who attend the Sleeping Bag Give-Away will also receive Christmas gift bags filled with a bedtime book (we suggest “Three Trees”), a small stuffed animal, a children’s toothbrush and toothpaste, and a washcloth and mild soap.

Fill Backpacks of Love Our shelter guests will truly appreciate travel-size toiletries, including toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, non-alcohol mouthwash; bath towel and washcloth; brush and comb, winter hat, scarf and gloves, warm socks (new pair); underwear (for men, new, sizes M-2X).  


The love that makes miracles happen begins with people like you.
You can help us provide warm beds, nourishing meals and inspiring Christmas celebrations for the homeless, hurting and poor.
