There is a gas shortage. Please use twitter #njgas to broadcast open gas stations and #njopen for places to eat, hotels with beds, and places to charge cell phones!

 
Atlantic City Rescue Mission’s shelter has relocated temporarily during Sandy and her aftermath and is operating very effectively from our host, Shore Fellowship Church in Egg Harbor Township. This temporary location will continue into the immediate future.

 
We do have some immediate needs listed below. If you want to help, or know someone who can, items can be delivered to one of 45 dropoff sites. Take your clothes, towels or underwear donations to one of our other drop-box sites and the Mission will pick them up in the next 3-5 days… Shore Fellowship drop-off is full. See our other drop-off sites for everything but food.

 
Phone lines are still not predictable. Email Chef Dave at davidbowen@acrescuemission.org to make food donations during the coming days and weeks.

 
If you know restaurants which can help and even donate, that would be wonderful. Ask for Mission Chef Dave, to assist on Food Relief. Or if you would like to make a contribution to our Emergency Assistance and Shelter Relief Fund, click here.
