There’s just over 4 days, 1 hour, and 15 minutes left to make your holiday donation to the Union Gospel Mission and have it doubled by a generous donor. The UGM serves the Lower Mainland and provides programming, drop-in centre support, meals, education, and more to help individuals overcome poverty, homelessness and addiction in our community.

When you make your donation by Friday, November 25, 2011, a generous donor will be matching the grand total. To make your giving process as simple as can be, you can select from pre-set amounts. $19.74 to feed and care for 6 people, $36.19 to feed and care for 11 people, $59.22 to feed and care for 18 people. You can also customize your gift and enter any dollar amount you like.

Other campaigns currently running include the Christmas Meal, where you can once again select from pre-set amounts and decide how many people you would like to support this season. Follow @UGM on Twitter or Facebook for information and news about your donations at work in the community.

    A good reminder on a day when it is so wet and cold.

    Thanks for highlighting the great work of the UGM. It should also be noted that you have in the past Blogathoned for the UGM, and that you’ve raised thousands of dollars that go to improving the lives of people in the DTES. Keep up the good work, Rebecca!
