Thanksgiving Preparations are Underway!

Mark_3smThanksgiving preparations are underway at Union Gospel Mission! Our kitchen crew is busily preparing over 100 turkeys! You can see a short video of the turkey prep from the kitchen on our Facebook page. Union Gospel Mission will be closing off NW Third Avenue between Burnside and Couch Streets on Thanksgiving morning and volunteers from NW Natural will be setting up a 120 foot long tent they have donated for use for the event. In the tent guests will be served the traditional Thanksgiving meal of turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, yams, vegetables, dinner roll and pumpkin pie. Union Gospel Mission plans to serve over 1,300 meals.

In addition to the meal, we will be distributing 800 cold weather gift bags to our guests. These bags contain a scarf, hat and gloves. We still need hats and glovesHat and glove donations can be dropped off at 3 NW Third Avenue in Portland, or you can donate them right from your computer keyboard!
