Union Gospel Mission Seeks Volunteers To Serve This Thanksgiving Eve
Monday, November 23, 2020
On Wednesday, The Union Gospel Mission will be serving Thanksgiving dinners to homeless neighbors from 1-3 p.m. on the corners of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Houston Street, and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Georgia Avenues. Volunteers are needed to pack the dinners earlier that day at the Union Gospel Mission beginning at 10 a.m. and then later that afternoon at 1 p.m. to distribute the food.
“With the help of our community, we expect to serve about 400 individuals a warm Thanksgiving meal and share the gospel,” said Rev.
Jon Rector, executive director of The Union Gospel Mission. “This year it is particularly challenging with donations being low due to COVID-19 and our struggling economy, but we have faith that folks will step up to donate.”
The Union Gospel Mission needs help with donations of monetary support and supplies. Gallon sized baggies filled with toiletries, gloves, hand warmers, socks and snacks are needed to distribute to the unhoused community. Monetary support can be given by visiting www.theuniongospelmission.org or by mail to PO Box 983, Chattanooga, Tn., 37401. In kind resources can be brought to The Union Gospel Mission, 124 Signal Hills Blvd. in Chattanooga. Gift cards to Walmart and Food City are also accepted.
