Go Green and help the homeless at the same time

on Wednesday, 29 July 2015. Posted in News

Resurrection Restoration Center for the Homeless announces the kick-off of its “Go Green for Homeless Project.” The purpose of this project is to help the homeless, while at the same time helping to keep our planet clean and reserving its resources. RRCH will partner with area agencies, corporations, churches, organizations and individuals by inviting them to collect aluminum cans and scrap metal to be donated to the program.

They will have drop boxes and cans at Brookgreen Pantry and Grill, 2230 Mechanicsville Road, Resurrection City Thrift and Treasure at 139 S. Warley Street and at 1809 North Douglas St. Partnering entities may also place a collection bin at or in their place of operation. RRCH will provide waste bags with the RRCH logo for participants to collect cans. 

Each collection site will receive stickers to be given to each donor. The stickers will read “Ask me how I helped the homeless by going green or I helped the homeless by going green.” RRCH will also pick up scrap metals or cans upon request. (They do need a forklift and hand trucks. If you can donate them, they are tax deductible.) Call Modestine Brody at 206-3575 or 662-2800, or Louis Brody at 615-4183.

All proceeds go towards increasing services and capacity to the homeless. Resurrection Restoration Center for the Homeless is a relatively new organization, receiving its 501 (c) (3) status early in 2008. Prior to its incorporation as RRCH, the homeless shelter had been operating as a crisis unit under Pee Dee Mental Health Center. When PDMH closed the shelter, Resurrection Restoration Center opened its doors to fill the gap left by the closure.
