This Thanksgiving will not be the same as in years past. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted life for all of us and has required us all to adjust to a new normal. One thing the pandemic did not stop is the number of people who need food, care and support. Demand for our programs and services has already risen over 50 percent, and as the crisis continues, we expect those numbers to rise over the next several months.
That’s why we believe it’s important this holiday season, more than ever before, that everyone has A Seat at the Table.
Our seats may be different, and the way we get to the table may be different, but one thing the coronavirus has taught us is that we are all equal in the eyes of the Lord—whether in hardship or in abundance. And we still are called to care for our neighbors in need with the blessings we have been given.
A Great Campaign, A Godly Cause
Central Union Mission invites you to be a sponsor for our fundraising campaign, A Seat at the Table. Through this campaign, which begins now and concludes with a live simulcast celebration at the shelter on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 25, we’ll be able to provide Thanksgiving meals and much more for our hurting neighbors in need this winter.
Please consider partnering with us for this campaign , and set aside November 25 to join us online as we live stream segments from our Thanksgiving Day meal at the shelter. Your support will ensure we have enough resources to provide the food and festivities for every guest who walks through our doors.
We may not be able to gather with our friends, but we can still work together to help our neighbors in need. A fun way to do that is to set up your own fundraising website, and invite your friends. You’re just a few clicks away from making a difference.
Feel free to use the sample text or create your own message that reflects your personal feelings.
