ROME — Recently Rome Rotarians Kristine Dombeck and Don Schleuter helped the Rome Rescue Mission, 413 E. Dominick St., get ready for its Easter Sunday Brunch.

They delivered 13 bags of food, 30-plus pounds of potatoes, and $175 in cash, in addition to several chocolate Easter bunnies and Easter eggs. These items were donated over the last few weeks by Rotarians and Dombeck’s neighbors. 

The Rome Rescue Mission invites the community for an Easter Celebration on Easter Sunday, April 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The dining room will be open, and meals will be available for take-out.

Easter meals will also be delivered on Good Friday, April 15, to the following locations on a first-come, first-served basis:

Valentine Apartments – 11:30-11:50 a.m.

Rome Mall – 12:15-12:30 p.m.

Georgian Arms – 12:40-1 p.m.

Madison Plaza – 1:15-1:30 p.m.

For its Easter celebration, the mission could use donations of the following items: Ham, salad ingredients, Easter candy, Easter eggs, potatoes, fresh vegetables, butter, coffee and creamer, orange and apple juice, muffins, chips and dip, cheese and crackers, eggs and bacon, milk and desserts.

Items can be donated Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to

Monetary donations may also be made online at RomeMission.org.

Rome Rotary has also donated $1,500 to the Rescue Mission so that they might improve the residential units they operate with security cameras and electrical upgrades. Rome Rescue Mission’s goal is to provide the men, women and children of the community a safe, secure and cozy place to live while they are in transition.

The Rome Rescue Mission is a Christian organization committed to assisting the least, the last and the lost. The mission provides a means of hope by giving shelter to the homeless, feeding the poor, inspiring life-long learning and encouraging a personal relationship with God to all individuals and families served. The Rome Rescue Mission is known as a hand up, not a hand-out.
