Pray to end poverty in our city! Join together with your family or church youth group and commit to praying regularly for those who struggle in poverty. Take a prayer walk around the building or pray over requests received from those we help. Seek God on behalf of those who desperately need it. For information, or to join our prayer warrior email distribution list, please contact Seamus Merrigan, JMerrigan@missiondc.org. See December 2012 prayer list here.
Bible Verse Writing Rally
Organize a verse writing rally as a family or with your child's youth group to encourage those less fortunate. Bible verse cards are a great encouragement to the low-income neighbors who receive regular food support from the Mission, and will be placed bags of groceries they receive. So we're asking your group of volunteers to:
Sandwich Assembly Project
Run a sandwich assembly project at home or your church. Every sandwich helps feed our neighbors in need. We encourage volunteers to coordinate all aspects of your project.
Hints for organizing a successful sandwich assembly project:
- Use meat and cheese only (no peanut butter, jelly, nutella or spreads)
- Use zip-lock sandwich bags
- Place the bagged sandwich in a brown lunch bag along with fruits, granola bars, cookies, etc.
Note: In 1 hour, a group of 15 folks are usually able to assemble approximately 200 sandwiches.
Once all sandwiches are made, please drop them off at our Front Desk located at:
Central Union Mission
810 5th St NW
Event Sponsorships - We invite your organization to sponsor an event, either through financial or volunteer support.
