Central Union Mission Food Drive

Sunday, October 20, at all services (bring donations to the Braddock Road Entrance)
Every week the Mission provides over 300 people with non-perishable foods through their Ministry Resource Center. IBC holds a food drive in conjunction with our communion services in support of this important ministry. While many of the clients are not homeless, they do suffer financial hardships. The program serves senior citizens, single families as well as the Hispanic community. The Mission recognizes that hunger does not always stem from homelessness or unemployment. It affects the working impoverished as well. For more information, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Fresh Start Kits

You and your team can encourage our homeless neighbors today - and all you need is a shoebox! We invite you to decorate a shoebox or Ziploc bag and fill it with small necessities that can help keep a homeless man or woman clean and safe. Remember that being homeless often means having no access to supplies we take for granted. You can fill your kit with these suggested items and more: comb/brush, hand towel, travel sizes of shampoo, soap, lotion, deodorant tissue pack, baby wipes, hand sanitizer, toothbrush, toothpaste, adhesive bandages, antibiotic ointment, and some warm socks. The items may be brought on Sundays to the Mission donation basket in the Atrium. For more information, visit missiondc.org/shoebox.

  1. Write out Bible verses of encouragement on 3x5 index cards, one verse per card.  Do not list any personal information.
  2. Send the stack of cards to Central Union Mission, P.O. Box 96763, Washington, DC 20090
