COVID-19 Holiday Update

During the COVID-19 crisis, Cookeville Rescue Mission has continued to keep its doors open for those in need. We can continue helping the homeless and hungry through any crisis with your help!

We are pleased to announce that we will still be engaging in our annual Sound of Hope fundraiser this holiday season! In an effort to keep everyone safe, some locations may not be available to sign up for. If your traditional location isn't available, we invite you to choose one of the other locations to continue to spread the Sound of Hope! If you and your family don't feel that it would be safe to do so, we urge you to consider donating to continue helping those in our community that so desperately need it.

Thank You!
