FireResQ supports FeedNC and the Mooresville Soup Kitchen family’s commitment to “providing a hot meal for those in need.” Having over 450 regular volunteers, as well as serving approximately 150 guests each day, FireResQ has been able to support the community of downtown Mooresville in a variety of ways through FeedNC – including donating time, resources, and services to anyone who needs help.

About Trees For Food Drive
In 2013, FireResQ decided to turn recycling Christmas trees into charity. With the help of FireHoseDirect employees, FireResQ recruited volunteers for two weekends to donate their time. By creating Trees4FoodDrive.com, we were able to allow patrons to register in advance to have their Christmas tree picked up in exchange for donations to the Mooresville Soup Kitchen. In our final year of operation, we collected over $3,000 in total donations.
About The Kindness Closet
Since 2022, FireResQ has supported The Mooresville Kindness Closet with donations of 911Wipes. The Kindness closet was founded in 2018 and is committed to addressing hygiene poverty. Hygiene poverty is the inability to afford basic household and hygiene items that are not covered by government assistance such as deodorant, soap, feminine products, toilet paper, toothpaste and shampoo and laundry detergent.
