Thanksgiving Food Drive at the Shelter

Join us on Saturday, November 5th, 2022 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm for a THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE to help feed neighbors in need this holiday season.

Location:  Central Union Mission Emergency Shelter, 65 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20001

Grab your family, neighbors, friends, school, church and let’s stuff the truck at the shelter with non-perishable canned and dry goods to help ensure everyone has a bountiful spread this Thanksgiving. 

There’s a special need for frozen turkeys, whole chickens, and hams.
