Union Mission set to serve 300 Thanksgiving meals to the needy

Posted By on Wed, Nov 20, 2019 at 10:50 AM


In the spirit of the holidays, Union Mission will serve 300 Thanksgiving dinners, provided by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation with the support of Sodexo, to local families and individuals in need.

The event happens Wednesday, November 27 at Grace House, 120 Fahm St., 11 a.m.– 1:30 p.m.

Volunteer opportunities are still available that day at Grace House from 8:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. or 10:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers will have the opportunity to serve a meal or assist with donation giveaways.

Space is limited. Register here.

“The holidays can be an especially difficult time for those experiencing homelessness,” says Glenn Hayes, Union Mission’s Culinary Arts Coordinator, who helps to oversee the kitchen and holiday meal prep. “Amid the season’s themes of family and community, the demeaning and uncertain nature of homelessness can leave individuals feeling all the more forgotten.”

Hayes believes feeding the homeless and spending the holiday with them helps them feel a sense of connection and purpose.

“I’m happy to be in a place to support the community and get a chance to work with others and help others,” said Hayes. “I’m glad to be here for Union Mission’s Thanksgiving meal this year.”
