Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Friend of the Urban Mission, Families who visit the Urban Mission oftentimes have to make the tough decision of whether to pay their bills or buy food. This is especially true during the holidays; in fact, for the next few months, the Urban Mission will see a tremendous rise in the number of food requests we receive from our community’s most vulnerable.

The Longest Table & Hunger Action Month 2018
