At this year’s dinner, we will be collecting non-perishable food items and hygiene & care products for Union Gospel Mission.
In the midst of uncertainties such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Union Gospel Mission knows the families and individuals thy serve are among the hardest hit during times of crisis. We are seeing parents of low-income families scrambling to put food on the tables. For many individuals, their jobs are hanging by a thread or have already been lost. There is a real need to provide daily necessities for the survival of those most vulnerable right now. One way you can help is by donating emergency care supplies to support those who are struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Even if you are not able to attend the Christmas Dinner, you can still participate by bringing your non-perishable food items or hygiene products to church and drop it off at the registration table as you enter the building.
