  • Union Mission Ministry Spaghetti Dinner
    The MRW Foundation has been a proud supporter of the Union Mission for several years. It’s more than just a place to live for our homeless neighbors. While they do provide housing and three meals a day, they also help people find jobs, learn life skills to keep them off the street, provide medical assistance, and spiritual care. While monetary support enables The Union Mission to give folks a hand up, The Mission itself needs helping hands too. And that’s just what the MRW staff did as a team and family! We went to work in October and prepared, cooked, and served a spaghetti dinner to the people currently living at the Union Mission. We had a group of people who went to the main kitchen in the men’s shelter to prepare and actually cook the meal in their industrial-sized kitchen! We cooked and prepared food for about 300 people! The shelter is set up with two dining areas. One for the men and one for the women. First we had a group of employees and family members who served food to the men at the men’s shelter. Then, we transported food from the kitchen to the women’s shelter. We had two groups of ladies who served at the women’s shelter, first to the single women living there and then to a group of women with their children. What a great experience for all of us to really get our hands in there and help out the people in our very own community! It was such a privilege we had to be able to help those in need.
