Thank you for your continued patience as Mission of Deeds helps people in need while trying to keep everyone healthy.

Help Us Provide Hope and Support to Those in Need

Mission of Deeds is currently in a phased reopening to maintain everyone’s safety. Our clients are being serviced by a small number of staff members, strictly adhering to physical distancing and other public health measures. Please continue to check our website for information regarding future phases that will include more information on our gradual reopening to the general public and welcoming back our wonderful volunteers when the time is right.

We know that health and food charities have been on the front lines of response to the COVID-19 crisis and have needed all forums to communicate about their crucial work. Thus, Mission of Deeds has chosen to remain in the background.

We are assisting families and individuals who have been deeply impacted by loss of income due to the pandemic. And, we are helping other clients, who were living without basic items even before the crisis hit.

We applaud the continued support of health and food charities.

We also want our supporters to know that it won’t be long before Mission of Deeds will need funds to provide free beds, furniture, and household essentials to more people in need than ever before. Thanks in advance for supporting our mission.
