Collections and Drives

Host drives throughout the year to provide for the needs of the homeless and poor.

You Can Make a Difference!

Due to the Cononavirus, the cost per meal has increased slightly. Every day, hundreds of hungry and hurting men, women, and children come to the doors of The Union Mission Ministries for help. We give them a safe haven, a bed, hot meals, a shower, and clean clothing. It is a challenge to provide all the things our guests need—things that you and I take for granted like toiletries, clothing, a blanket, and a towel. The list is long, but you can help us give them a fresh start by donating our most needed items.

Linens & Towels

Donate XL twin sheets, pillowcases, pillows, bath towels, washcloths and blankets are also a necessity. All linens and towels will be bleached regularly, so white is best.

Many items are needed such as paper products, first aid supplies, cleaning supplies, and more, to make camp a success. You can help by providing those needs!

Furniture & Household items

Furniture and household items are needed for our shelter guests when they secure permanent housing. Other items are sold in our Thrift Store, with 100% of the proceeds returning to the ministry, supporting the life-transforming work of the Mission.

Many of our guests arrive with their clothing in a garbage bag. Providing them with a wheeled suitcase or dufflebag helps protect their belongings and restore their dignity.
