The Union Gospel Mission, as part of their ministry outreach, has been feeding the homeless for over 70 years. On Easter Sunday, from 1–3 p.m., the Union Gospel Mission will be continuing this outreach by serving approximately 400 traditional Easter meals in Downtown Chattanooga and also handing out blessing packs, bags filled with needed supplies for our unhoused neighbors.
The mission will be serving locations that include M.L.
King Boulevard and Georgia Avenue, and M.L. King Boulevard and Houston Street. On the menu will be ham, green beans, potatoes, rolls and dessert.
The Union Gospel Mission could not serve and meet needs without the support of volunteers, prayers, and monetary support. Executive Director of the Union Gospel Mission, Rev. Jon Rector said, “This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for families, church groups, and individuals looking to serve Chattanooga and magnify Christ!” Volunteers are needed to serve meals and hand out blessing packs.
Interested volunteers can visit theuniongospelmission.org for more information on ways to serve, donate and get involved. Blessing packs are also needed. Volunteers can fill gallon sized baggies with toiletry items and snacks and encouraging notes. These may be dropped off at the Union Gospel Mission at 124 Signal Hills Dr., Chattanooga, Tn. 37405.
