One Meal/One Hope

Hi everyone!

I wanted to get a bit personal here and talk about one of my favorite charities, Union Gospel Mission. What does UGM do? Straight from their website

“Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission provides emergency care and long-term recovery services to hurting and homeless people in the greater Seattle area.”

How awesome is that? From meals and overnights, Search & Rescue, addiction recoverytransitional housing and more UGM is committed to helping people in their time of need with practical care.

UGM states their core values as:

  • Bold and courageous
  • Diverse brilliance
  • Passionate urgency
  • Strategic effectiveness
  • Pursuit of excellence
  • Sacred trust
  • Innovative and scrappy

Concerned about about the financials? Check out their accountability page.

I hope you are wondering how you can help. UGM is looking for more blankets (Amazon has a special price for the right kind of blankets!), mens socks, and for food items such as:

  • Turkeys, ham, bacon
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned fruit
  • Potatoes, onions
  • Oranges
  • Rice & stuffing mix (if you coupon then you know you can get these for cheap!)
  • Shelf-stable milk
  • Eggs & butter
  • Canned meats & fish
  • Mayonnaise
  • White & brown sugar
  • Soup

UGM is currently doing their One Meal/One Hope meal drive! For only $1.92 you can provide a meal for someone in need. Please join me in reaching my goal of 100 meals! If you donate at least 3 meals to UGM and leave a comment on their page after donating, please email me with your name and what single pattern you’d like and I’ll gift it to you as a thank you! I won’t be making any money off of this, I just want to help, and you can too.
