I have been a volunteer at Union Gospel Mission for about three years. I work in the kitchen helping to serve meals to the residents of the mission and the guests. The atmosphere is very friendly and inviting. The chefs do miraculous things with the donations of food they are provided. I am always amazed each time I go with what dishes the chefs have created for the evening meal. The people continually come back and tell us how good their meal was. The meals are always appetizing and I secretly hope each time that there are leftovers for me to enjoy. They also do their best to make accommodations for anyone with special dietary needs. I have found the employees to be very welcoming to the volunteers, residents, and guests. It is always a fun atmosphere and I never mind the time I have dedicated for this organization. I believe that Union Gospel Mission is providing a valuable service for the homeless in our community. By providing for the basic needs of food a shelter, counseling, job placements and support, this organization is allowing these individuals to repair their lives and helping to bring an end to homelessness.
