Gift distribution at Central Union Mission's Show Some Love 2018

At the Show Some Love event, we engage the community, volunteers and other partners to help us transform the shelter into a Christmas wonderland. We provide an elegant dinner, festive entertainment, celebrity appearances, personal photo ops and gift bags filled with inspirational and meaningful gifts. While we’re decorating the floors below, the men will be treated to haircuts, manicures and more in the dormitory above. We invite you to join us to Show Some Love on December 13, 2019, to neighbors experiencing homelessness this Christmas.

“We consider your financial contributions a sacred trust and we are committed to efficiency, transparency, impact and making good on our promises. If your contribution is made in connection to a specific appeal, event or program, we will make sure it is applied accordingly. There are times when the collective generosity of our donors provides more than may be needed for a specific project or event. In those cases, our commitment is to use any additional funds for similar or related purposes, including general, overall support for the great work that the Mission does on a daily basis to feed the hungry and shelter the homeless.”
