ROCKFORD - Fast food and a non-profit get together to help those in need.
Taco Bell patrons can receive a crunchy or soft shelled taco in exchange for a $1 donation to the Rockford Rescue Mission.
"We're alway so grateful for the support of our community partners" says Sherry Pitney, Executive Director of the Rockford Rescue Mission. "Through opportunities like this one they're not only allowing the Mission to assist our neighbors who are hungry and homeless or struggling to provide for their families, they're also giving their customers a hands-on way to make a difference."
The Rescue Mission serves over 160,000 meals a year and provides shelter every night to protect people from the elements. It also provides individuals with clothes, medical care, long-term recovery, vocational training, and more.
