Central Union Mission

“Right now the Mission is in dire need of white twin-sized bed sheets and twin-sized bed-bug-proof mattress covers,” said Rev. Rutherford Cooke, Director of Men’s Ministry.”

Your donation to Central Union Mission will support individuals experiencing homelessness, underprivileged women, children, seniors, families and veterans.

“The Mission can always use donations of food—especially protein like meat and eggs—and monetary donations can be used to buy food from the Capital Area Food Bank, Cooke said, “We also rely on our supporters’ prayers and volunteer efforts!”

Donations are accepted every day from 7am to 7pm at 65 Massachusetts Avenue NW.
