As mentioned in my previous post, the UGM is pretty special to me since they do such great work for the less fortunate all around Metro Vancouver. Here are some of their own words from their website:
Union Gospel Mission has been providing hope for the hungry, hurting and homeless since 1940… …Employing a full-time staff of approximately 130 and relying on a broad base of loyal volunteers, Union Gospel Mission provides meals, shelter, education, counselling, housing and more to hundreds of people each day.

They have various services, support centres and Thrift Stores with 12 facilities around Metro Vancouver.
