The Union Gospel Mission of Chattanooga will host its Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Wednesday from noon-2 p.m. or until the food runs out.  It will be held at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center, 200 E. ML King Blvd.

The Union Gospel Mission will be providing a free Thanksgiving meal consisting of turkey, dressing, gravy, green beans, sweet potato casserole, cranberry sauce, roll, dessert, and tea. It will also be giving away blankets, cold weather clothing, and other miscellaneous items.

“We do this every year, as a way to bless Chattanooga’s homeless and needy,” said UGM Executive Director Rev. Jon Rector.  “The Union Gospel Mission has been serving Chattanooga and the tri-state area for over 68 years and this is just one of the ways we do that.  What I love is the amount of volunteers, local churches, and so many others who pitch in to truly make this a success. This is a great way for folks to share a little bit of the love of Christ during the holidays.”

The Union Gospel Mission, Chattanooga’s oldest homeless organization, is dedicated to serving the homeless and needy of Chattanooga and the Tri-State area by providing physical, social, and spiritual resources; to meet the true needs of its clients.

For more information please contact Rev. Rector via email:  mail@theuniongospelmission.org or call 752-4998.
