Support the Fort Collins Rescue Mission

After our successful RadioThon last week, 600 KCOL and our friends at Radio 94.9 are still helping the Fort Collins Rescue Mission raise funds and goods to serve the homeless and hurting at the Fort Collins Rescue Mission shelter and the Harvest Farm in Wellington.

Just because our Radiothon ends doesn't mean the need doesn't end. 

Provide a Financial Donation

For only $1.92, your donation can help ONE hungry, hurting, homeless person. For less than $50, you can provide help to 25 people. But your donation doesn't just feed or cloth these individuals. It helps them find hope for their future.

The Fort Collins Rescue Mission is always in need of items to help them serve the homeless and hurting. Some of them items the Fort Collins Rescue Mission needs at their Fort Collins Shelter includes: 

  • Canned food – vegetables, fruit, meat, soup, beans, etc.

  • Work boots
  • Work gloves
  • Winter coats and hats
  • Coveralls and bib overalls
Donations of these items can be taken to the Fort Collins Rescue Mission or dropped off at the 600 KCOL Studios during normal business hours.

How Your Donation Helps

The Fort Collins Rescue Mission, formerly the Open Door Mission, offers emergency services to thousands of needy people throughout the year. These core services correspond with their mission objective - to meet people at their physical point of need. FCRM provides food, shelter and clothing to those in need. The mission also offers rehabilitative services, giving men and women who experience homelessness the keys they need to return to society.

FCRM also operates Harvest Farm in Wellington. The 209-acre farm near Wellington helps men break cycles of addiction, poverty and homelessness through their New Life Program. Once enrolled, men gain the skills needed to become confident, self-sufficient members of society through academics, spiritual development, emotional counseling, and work therapy.

The farm is home to 100 chickens, 5 cows, 30 beef calves, and 24 goats. The farm also grows fresh produce for local restaurants and donations to the Larimer County Food Bank.

All aspects of Harvest Farm’s New Life Program are provided free of charge - made possible by community support.
