Make Your Shopping Easy

Use our Amazon Wishlist!
Donated clothing is given to our shelter guests, while sheets, towels, blankets and washcloths are for their care while in our shelters. When our guests secure housing, we assist them with donated furniture and household goods.


Food, Clothing, Shelter, and so much more!

Hundreds of hungry and hurting men, women, and children come to the doors of The Union Mission for help every day, many with just the clothes on their backs. They need a hot meal, a shower, clean clothing, and a safe place to lay their heads. You can help restore their dignity and self-respect by providing for their physical needs. Then counseling, and job and life skills training is offered to help people overcome their homelessness and become productive citizens once again. Most important, as each one hears the Gospel of Christ, lives are transformed forever.

When you see a homeless person on the street asking for help…

Instead of giving them money, consider giving them a care package. Stock your car with packaged snacks, socks, bottled water, rain poncho, a fast-food gift card, Union Mission Information Card, and a bus pass to get to the Mission. Help them get the help they need!
