Easter Celebration a Blessing for All!
Many thanks to those who volunteered, donated and supported Union Gospel Mission's annual Easter event this year. The Easter brunch was a wonderful blessing for all involved. This year, Union Gospel Mission's kitchen staff upgraded the menu to include Eggs Benedict, ambrosia, hash browns, juice and coffee. Guests came into an Easter themed dining room, complete with colorful table cloths, streamers, and balloons. Volunteers were providing service with a smile, allowing our guests to sit in the dining area and be served at the tables. Live music was provided throughout the event. On Easter Sunday, 717 meals were served!
In addition to a delicious meal, guests received snack packs with soda, cookies and other treats. For the third year, Union Gospel Mission provided guests with Hope Tote hygiene kits that contained items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, tissues, socks and more. On Easter Sunday Union Gospel Mission gave away 526 Hope Tote hygiene kits! Thousands of hygiene items were collected and donated by volunteers, it was a great community effort.
