UGM shelter invites community to BBQ
As the Union Gospel Mission Emergency Winter Shelter prepares to depart the neighborhood, staff at the shelter have invited the community to a BBQ today at 6 p.m.
A local church will be providing enough food for 150 people, including Korean-style short ribs, salad, rice, hot dogs, baked beans and coleslaw.
"I would love for you to come out as we have a good time and eat with friends. The meal will start at 6pm, but we wanted to say a few thank you's to the local Fire Department, Police Department, and people like you," said shelter supervisor Paul LaRose.
Members of Douglas Park Cooperative have participated on the Shelter Advisory Council and have made weekly deliveries of homemade soup to the shelter.
