How to Host an Event or Drive

How to Host an Event or DriveAlmost 300 men, women and children come to The Union Mission Ministries daily, many with only the clothes on their backs. They have many needs. You can help us meet those needs in several ways. You can participate in one of our events, host an event yourself, or host a drive to collect needed items. Possible events that you could host include: a cook-out, motorcycle ride, golf tournament, birthday/holiday party, etc. If you own a business or restaurant, you may want to allow some of your proceeds to go to The Union Mission Ministries. You may have your own creative ideas. Please share them with us! To host a drive you could collect blankets, toiletries, socks and underwear, hats and gloves, etc. For more information about events or to get a complete list of items to collect for a drive, contact Linda Jones at (757) 627-8686, and make a difference that changes lives and brings hope to those who are hurting.
