Feeding the Hungry at UGM PDF Print E-mail

Wayne Crowder spends the 2nd Saturday of every month at the Union Gospel Mission, serving food. He has partnered with people from Church on the Hill, United Way staffers, with anybody who is interested. Wayne's granddaughters come regularly to help out; they sang Christmas carols for the folks last December, he said.

"It's great to see the youth getting involved. We have a couple of twins that come with us on a regular basis. They... knew nothing about the homeless culture until they came with my granddaughter. They were in the 8th grade at that time. Their first day there serving behind the counter I watched them as tears ran down their cheeks... It touched them, and they've come back every month for eight months now. It's a good safe place to serve."

Wayne likes bringing people along. "It's a good way to allow people to stretch and experience new things in their life. And some of them have become very addicted to it and are really faithful."
