Christmas Food Drive

Host a drive at your business, in your neighborhood, church, club, or make it a family project to help Central Union Mission feed the hungry.

We are in need of Christmas trimmings. Through December 22, donations can be dropped off at the Comprehensive Family Resource Center, 3194 Bladensburg Rd. NE, Suite B, Washington, DC 20018. We’re open for delivery Mon-Fri, 9am–4pm. Thank you for caring and have a blessed Christmas!
