"Being homeless and living in a tent is quite a humbling experience. We don't have heaters and try to have fires when we can. If it's raining, then the wood gets wet or it puts out the fire," says Chenna, homeless in Seattle.
The temperatures are dropping…and people like Chenna are outside in a tent with no way to warm themselves.
Your year-end giftby December 31 will help deliver care and save lives from the freezing rain and cold. Our vans take emergency care and supplies out on to the streets where men and women like Chenna need it most. We offer safe shelter — while providing warm blankets, food, a hot drink and other emergency supplies.
Each item in the 2016 Christmas Catalog is representative of the needs of Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission. Donations will be used to support the area of the Mission’s ministry where the need is greatest.
