As we become more aware of that nagging, uneasy feeling that there is something not quite right about the orgy of consumerism most of us know as Christmas, we begin to see that it's up to us to do something.
UGM offers life-changing programs and services: meals, chaplaincy, drop-ins, after school programs for children, family services, outreach, alcohol and drug recovery, employment and education services. Their desire is to give hope and help while creating brighter futures for men, women, youth and children in communities across Metro Vancouver and the city of Mission.
My beautiful friend Leah, an amazing and devoted UGM staff member, sent me the link to this commercial (in which she stars.) Union Gospel Mission offers you some new Christmas gift ideas. Please visit http://www.ugm.ca/christmas to find gifts that matter, for people who need it.
