Today, the volunteers and staff at the Union Gospel Mission were busier than ever, dishing up piles of hope along with turkey and everything that fixes low-income people across the region.

According to UGM, 1,800 Christmas dinners were prepared.

Due to the pandemic, the recipients were served to go through drop-in doors.

To get all this done, it required 1,500 pounds of roasted turkey, 375 pounds of homemade filling, 425 pounds of mashed potatoes, 160 gallons of gravy, 400 pounds of vegetables and 350 cherry pies.

“It’s been a long year, and at times it felt like hope was in short supply,” UGM’s Nadia Tchoumi said in a press release. “This holiday season, we want to continue to do what we’ve been doing all this year and for the last 80 years: igniting hope and building meaningful connections over a meal.”
