This Thanksgiving will not be the same as in years past. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted life for all of us and has required us all to adjust to a new normal. One thing the pandemic did not stop is the number of people who need food, care and support. Demand for our programs and services has already risen over 50 percent, and as the crisis continues, we expect those numbers to rise over the next several months.
That’s why we believe it’s important this holiday season, more than ever before, that everyone has A Seat at the Table.
Our seats may be different, and the way we get to the table may be different, but one thing the coronavirus has taught us is that we are all equal in the eyes of the Lord—whether in hardship or in abundance. And we still are called to care for our neighbors in need with the blessings we have been given.
A Virtual Event, A Godly Cause
Central Union Mission invites you to be a sponsor for our virtual fundraising event, A Seat at the Table. Through this campaign, which begins now and concludes with a live simulcast celebration at the shelter on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 25, we’ll be able to provide Thanksgiving meals and much more for our hurting neighbors in need this winter.
Please consider partnering with us for this virtual occasion, and set aside November 25 to join us online. You can also check out our fun and meaningful participation opportunities at missiondc.org/TheTable. Please contact Deborah Chambers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-827-3078 for more information.
But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the
lame, the blind, and you will be blessed.
The heart of the Mission is serving the hidden homeless and hungry in our city—one life at a time. Central Union Mission relies on the support of private donors, churches, foundations and other organizations. We do not receive any government contributions. Your partnership helps us provide a seat at the table for everyone.
