City Union Mission Guests Enjoy Special Championship Football Celebration Thanks to Loyal Volunteers
“Our men are excited to take a break from the intense work of rebuilding their lives and enjoy fellowship, food and this historic game.”
—Chief Executive Officer Terry Megli
KANSAS CITY, Mo.—Championship football Sunday celebrations are underway as staff work with faithful volunteers to organize an evening of fun for homeless men at City Union Mission. On Sunday, February 2, Mission guests will enjoy a special celebration and viewing of the championship game. Local volunteers will provide game day food and fellowship for an estimated 220 guests in the Mission’s men’s emergency shelter and participants of their long-term Christian Life Program. The event will take place in the dining room at City Union Mission’s Men’s Center at 5:30 p.m.
“The Mission is buzzing with excitement over the big game,” shared City Union Mission Chief Executive Officer Terry Megli. “Our guests are eager to watch our very own Chiefs battle for the championship title. Men staying with us come from all across the nation, but for this one night, we are united in support of our hometown team. Our men are excited to take a break from the intense work of rebuilding their lives and enjoy fellowship, food and this historic game.”
Loyal volunteers from Antioch Bible Baptist Church will once again serve the Mission’s Christian Life Program clients, L. Minor Care Center residents and emergency shelter guests at this year’s Super Bowl Celebration. A dinner of chili dogs, potato salad, beans and cake will be served in the Men’s Center dining room, followed by the viewing of the game. An inspiring video featuring several National Football League Christian players will be viewed at halftime.
“We are incredibly grateful for our dedicated volunteers making an already special game even more special for our guests,” shared Megli. “While the entire town is focused on the Chiefs this Sunday, our devoted volunteers are turning their attention towards giving back and spreading the love of Christ by serving the men at the Mission.”
