Union Gospel Mission Needs Helpers To Serve This Thanksgiving Eve
Tuesday, November 23, 2021
The Union Gospel Mission will be serving Thanksgiving dinners to homeless neighbors on Wednesday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the front lawn of the Bessie Smith Cultural Center, 200 E. MLK Blvd. Volunteers are needed to help set-up, serve dinner and clean up after.
“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 we have seen more in need, officials report more are homeless than in previous years.
We are ready to serve and have faith that folks will step up to donate.”
The Union Gospel Mission needs your help with donations of monetary support and supplies. Gallon sized baggies filled with toiletries, gloves, handwarmers, 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 Road in Chattanooga. Gifts cards to Walmart and Food City are also accepted.
