Giving the Basics has been a friend of the Mission for over 6 years now, providing hygiene products and more to our guests on a monthly basis. We appreciate you blessing City Union Mission with these much needed donations. Thank you for the great work you do for us and others in our community!
We are so grateful to our community partners at HyVee for blessing City Union Mission again this year with their annual grocery bag round-up. In total they raised $8,000 worth of nonperishable canned goods for the homeless! Thank you to all of you that supported us and bought bags while shopping at Hy-Vee!
Great partners like Cerner who continuously give to the Mission are a huge blessing to us. Between their volunteers, their meal provisions, their financial assistance and their cable donation, they are a huge help to what we are doing here at City Union Mission.
City Union Mission has been needing to upgrade an aging forklift for it's warehouse. The request was submitted for budget consideration. The Mission development department heard and began to think of ways to secure this expensive piece of equipment. The previous owners of our 8th Street warehouse building was Shoppa's Mid America, a forklift sales and service company. They have helped the Mission with fundraising efforts previously. So the request was sent to Shoppa's leadership team and yesterday the Mission received a very nice, totally refurbished forklift! What a huge blessing! Thank you so much Shoppa's!
