Help Reopen Rainbow Place Shelter

Rainbow Place Shelter

 

Tuesday, October 7

5:00-7:00 PM

215 West Montgomery Ave

Rainbow Place Shelter provides winter emergency overnight shelter to homeless women in a safe, caring environment by supportive staff that treats all guests with dignity and compassion. The shelter has been closed for the summer but will reopen in the fall and the Chamber is going to help by setting up cots, etc. The staff at Rainbow Place has also requested items to be donated for the women coming in November. These items can be dropped off at the shelter:
 

New blankets,towels, wash cloths,pillows, twin fitted sheets and flip flops (shower shoes)
 

Directions: Rainbow Place Shelter is located at the Rockville Presbyterian Church. You cannot enter the church lot directly from West Montgomery Ave.  From W. Montgomery Ave., turn onto Forest Ave. Then turn right on Harrison (first street you come to). Go ¾ way down Harrison and the church parking lot is on the right.
 

The church office is accessible by ringing the door bell under the red canopy. Office hours  are Tue, Wed, Thurs 10-2, Friday 10-1. Rainbow is located on the third floor of the building on the right after you enter the lot. On the right side of the door is a listing for Rainbow, just ring the bell.  Please call the church 301-762-3363 or Rainbow 301-762-1496 before dropping off anything. This will insure someone is available to give the donor a receipt. If you don't want a receipt or are not available when someone is at the building just drop donations off near the door to the office (left side) under the walkway with a note that it is for Rainbow.
 

Register HERE to participate in the shelter reopening!  You do not have to register to drop off goods or money.
