ADV member parish St. Brendan's in the City worships weekly on Sunday evenings at Central Union Mission (CUM). By meeting at the Mission on Sundays, the CUM Board members, who also are members at St. Brendan’s, have opportunities to interact on a weekly basis with men the Mission serves, and to see this special ministry in action.
On August 6, 2011, Central Union Mission and Mission Partners will be hosting Operation Backpack, an annual event where children in need, grades Pre-K through High School, are given backpacks filled with school supplies for the upcoming school year. Your help with the event will be instrumental in making it successful.
We are expecting that 1,200 or more children will need help this August. With the assistance of donors and community partners, over 1,000 backpacks filled with school supplies were distributed to community children in 2010.
Your valuable help will go a long way toward meeting even more needs this year.By helping Washington's needy children prepare for school, you're ensuring that they will return fully equipped for learning.
