The Rescue Mission Fort Wayne Handout

The Rescue Mission Fort Wayne Handout

by Keeton Yescott January 20, 2020 3 Comments

December was another great month for us on the Sky Team. Coming off of an incredible November partnered with Wheeler Mission in Indianapolis, we were very excited to focus our efforts just two hours north to another Hoosier town, Fort Wayne.

We have worked with The Rescue Mission previously and were truly blown away by what they do for their town. We had a goal of raising 4,000 items for them - and the residents of Fort Wayne truly stepped up to help us get super close to this goal!

Considering things in the online retail world slow down significantly 7-10 days before Christmas, the fact that we were able to raise 3,444 items is considered a huge accomplish from our perspective. To celebrate that, our team took a trip up to The Rescue Mission on January 16 to hand out the items and spend a little time with their team. Take a look at some behind the scenes photos from our day there.

2,748 pairs of socks, 450 beanies, and 216 scarves donated to The Rescue Mission in Fort Wayne.


It's always humbling to see all the people who will put on the items we hand out to them almost immediately after giving it to them.

A big thank you to Wane 15 who ran a story about our handout yesterday. Take a look here.

I'm Keeton - proud Portland (Maine) native living in Indianapolis with my husband and dog. Writing has always been a hobby of mine, so getting to write this blog is one of the highlights of my job. You can almost always find me with a coffee in hand, preferably iced if I had it my way. I'm passionate about fashion & believe that putting on the perfect pair of jeans is an instant mood booster. Some of my favorite things to do are going thrifting, reading murder mystery books, and spending quality time with people I love.
