Get Involved



At Oliver Gospel Mission, we gratefully accept donations of food, clothing, and other quality products. These goods will be used to directly help those in need. Additional donations are sent to the Oliver Gospel Thrift Store, where all proceeds benefit the Mission. Your gifts will directly benefit those who need help most. All donations should be dropped off at the Mission’s Front Desk, located at 1100 Taylor St in downtown Columbia (corner of Taylor and Assembly St). Please drop off between 8:30 am-4 pm in order to avoid the Mission’s busier times.
