Businesses, agency gifts aid Union Gospel Mission
Barbara Comito of Union Gospel Mission shared some ways neighbors are helping them.
• No-Li Brewhouse is providing UGM with a gallon of hand sanitizer per day.
• Rick Clark of Giving Backpacks raised $1,000 online in 15 minutes to provide 100 meals for the women and children at the Crisis Shelter from Mac Daddy's on Monday night. Rick's idea is to support local businesses and help homeless shelters at the same time.
• Because Northern Quest Resort and Casino is closed for two weeks, they brought a huge quantity of prepped food to UGM last week. The timing couldn't have been better. UGM is currently short staffed, so 500+ pounds of chicken and beef, along with a healthy supply of sliced vegetables will be put to good use feeding the men, women and children in our shelters.
