Monday- Saturday – 12:00pm-8:00pm

While the service is free, donations are encouraged. All proceeds will help support The Rescue Mission’s programs for homeless men, women and children in the Fort Wayne area.

“We’re excited to be able to provide a service like this to the community that supports us so well. People can come in, relax, let us do the wrapping and enjoy a hot drink and a couch for a while,” says Richard Cummins, Executive VP of Operations for The Rescue Mission.

The endeavor will require many volunteers for wrapping, greeting, package and tag preparation and more. There are plenty of volunteer shifts still available. To sign up to volunteer, please visit
