Dear Mission Partners,
Thanks for all you do to support the work done at the Mission on behalf of the hungry, hurting and homeless - you make the difference!
Here are our latest partnership opportunities:
Help Us BUILD UP our Food Distribution Program!
On October 29th, from 9am -5pm, we will be hosting a day of greatly needed renovations and construction at our Distribution Center (3182 Bladensburg Road, NE, Washington DC). The site provides food and clothing for hundreds of low-income residents in Northeast DC. If you have skills or an interest in gathering a team to help paint, carpet or drywall the facility, please let us know! Our friends from Dominion
Electric will be there that day updating the lighting system. We hope you can make it too!
Celebrating Our Seniors...
Help us call bingo, serve meals, or greet our guests at our Seniors Luncheon programs on November 9th and December 12th from 9:45am-1pm. It's a special time of fellowship, fun and great food!
Become a Database Volunteer!
We get really busy in the Database Office during this time of year! We would love to have 5-10 volunteers work in our Database Office for a few hours per week between 10am-4pm. Contact Ashley Grier at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to come help out. Senior volunteers are welcome. We'll have coffee, donuts and envelopes waiting!
'Tis the season for the Combined Federal Campaign. If you are a federal civilian, postal or military employee, you can select a favorite charity to support through the Combined Federal Campaign until December 15th. We'd like you to consider designating Central Union Mission, CFC #85786, as your beneficiary. A major CFC sponsorship benefit for Central Union Mission is that we receive CFC pledges in a regular monthly check and this helps stabilize our
budget - especially in the lean summer months.
As well, if you are responsible for your workplace charity fairs, you can share the Mission's efforts with your co-workers. For ideas and materials, please contact Deborah Chambers at 202-745-7118 ext. 227.
Does your workplace sponsor a United Way campaign? The Mission is also supported by United Way of the National Capital Area. You can designate #9617 when you donate online at https://donate.unitedwaynca.org/page/contribute/donate-nonprofit.
Donate a Vehicle
Give your passenger or utility van, truck or passenger vehicle - and someone in need - another life! Donate your vehicle to Central Union Mission. These vehicles are helpful in transporting program participants to job interviews, medical appointments, job skills training, counseling sessions and much more. Please contact Deborah Chambers, 202-745-7118 ext 227, for more details.
