Imagine waking up this Christmas morning to the wet, cold pavement. No one should have to sleep in a doorway or under a bridge. Your gift of shelter for a night provides a homeless man, woman, or child with a safe place to lay their head — instead of sleeping on the streets where it’s cold and dangerous. It could literally save lives!
Your gift helps people like Maurice. He came in off the streets for a warm bed, but it didn't end there. He continued his journey by graduating from our recovery program, finding gainful employment, and starting a savings account. He still keeps in touch with us!
Each item in this Gift Catalog is representative of the needs of Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission.
