Mission Will “Show Some Love”
to A Community in Need this Holiday Season
Washington, DC—December 13, 2022— While some are able to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends in the comfort of their home, there are others who are struggling with homelessness and find this time of year to be extremely difficult. Each year, to encourage and uplift shelter guests, Central Union Mission hosts their “Show Some Love” event.
On Dec. 15, from 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm the overnight guests of Central Union Mission will enjoy a full afternoon of pampering that includes complimentary haircuts, festive holiday music, fellowship and games. While the men are enjoying their day of relaxation, the auditorium will be transformed into a winter wonderland for the official “Show Some Love” celebration that will begin at 4:30 pm. The Mission will serve an elegant, chef-prepared dinner and will distribute gift bags filled with inspirational and useful gifts like cologne along with pampering kits. The men will also enjoy music from a DJ, and a Christmas carol singalong.
According to President & CEO Joseph Mettimano, “The purpose of Show Some Love is to encourage participants to enter one of the Mission’s life-changing restoration programs and to help them overcome the trauma and depression that feeds into the cycle of homelessness. Our hope is that after we show how much we care, that they will then take a step in the right direction to start to care for themselves.”
