As the temperature drops in Rockford, the need to help a Rockford homeless shelter operate at 100% drastically increases. Volunteers are needed as extra support when the shelter begins to reach capacity. Mike Herrick at RRM put it into simpler terms when talking to WREX-TV,

Volunteers aren't needed every night but the rescue mission wants to be prepared for whenever necessary. Without volunteers, it's difficult to serve those looking for warm shelter, hot foods, and a place to sleep.

[Side note: Rockford Rescue Mission is still looking for donated dinner rolls and sweet potatoes for special event dinner on December 23, 2017.]
