Believe it or not, the Union Gospel Mission's roots go all the way back to 1900. Since then it has been reaching out to support people in need.

The Union Gospel Mission's quest has always been this:

Caring for the needs of the community with compassion while sharing the hope of Jesus Christ.

Their four-pronged approach includes providing:

  • Shelter, food, and clothing
  • Working to restore their client's confidence and stability
  • Providing education and health services
  • Ongoing support for people beginning their new journey

Last year Union Gospel Mission averaged over 125 guests per night. They provided over 45,000 nights of shelter and served over 151,000 meals.

None of this can be done without the support of the Sioux Falls community.

This 'Mission Possible' free barbecue and clothing drive is an easy and convenient way for everybody to get involved and help.

In other words, come for the barbecue, stay for the fun. Also, round up those gently worn or new clothing items piling up in your closet, your kids' closets, and friends' closets, and you'll be part of the Load-the Truck Clothing Drive.
