Union Gospel Mission Will Serve 300 Meals Christmas Day to Neighbors in Need

 

Portland, Ore., - Union Gospel Mission will serve 300 meals on Christmas Day at 10 am at 15 NW Third Avenue in Portland. Due to the ongoing pandemic, they will once again serve the meal to-go rather than have a sit-down indoor meal in the dining hall. 

The meal will be ham, Au Gratin potatoes, green beans with bacon and onion, a hot dinner roll and butter, tropical fruit salad with marshmallows, coconut, and whipped cream, pie, and a snack sack for later in the day. They will also have coffee and bottled water. 

“On a day when most businesses are closed and many people are home with their families, we are so blessed to be able to provide a meal, a smile and a kind word to someone who might not otherwise have anything to eat or drink or any human connection on Christmas Day. I hope we will make a difference in that person’s life,” said Lori Quinney Food Service Director for Union Gospel Mission.
