This Christmas season we have a several new outreach opportunities planned! Please join us as we reach out to bless our local communities this holiday season.
Boots, Hats, Gloves, and Coat Drive
We will be collecting winter items to help protect local kids from the cold weather. Just bring the items, from our shopping list below, to either the Yakima or Selah Campus between Sunday, Nov 27, to Sunday, Dec 11.
You can also give financially to help, just click Give Now (make sure to select Holiday Outreach under the Giving Type prompt).
Holiday Food Boxes
For students experiencing food insecurities, the only consistent meals they receive are at school. This makes the Christmas break difficult for them and we want to help! We will be sending home boxes of food for students in need. If you would like to help sponsor a box, click here. (Make sure to select Holiday Outreach under the Giving Type prompt).
Handwritten Christmas Cards
We want to bless the staff at the Union Gospel Mission (UGM) and local schools with handwritten Christmas cards. We will be having a Christmas Cards Party at both the Yakima (12/14) and Selah (12/15) Campus. Don't worry, if you are unsure of what to write, we will have sample cards available to help.
Union Gospel Mission Christmas Eve Service
For the past seven years we have hosted a Christmas Eve service at the UGM, singing carols, drinking hot chocolate, and sharing the hope of Christmas. Please come join us as we celebrate the birth of Jesus with the residents at the UGM.
Stockings for Union Gospel Mission Families
If you would like to brighten a kids Christmas, then this outreach is for you! We are bringing stockings filled with gifts to the UGM Christmas Eve service for the children staying there. On Sunday, Dec 4, we will have stockings available (with a suggest shopping list) that you can take home to fill and return back to the church.
