Thanksgiving Dinner will be served at UMD tomorrow on Thanksgiving day from 6 to 7 p.m. Anyone in need of a meal is invited to dine with us. The dinner is being sponsored by Pleasant Grove Church Cary. A special thank you to UMD's Ms. Doris Walker and Preston Mayo of the Mayo Foundation for preparing the food. image.png The lobby in the Resource Center will be closed on Thanksgiving day, and back open Friday morning. Have a happy & safe Thanksgiving, one & all!
Happy Labor Day! Today, many of us get to set aside the day to take a break from our labor...our 9-5 jobs. While rest is great, having a job to provide for you and your family is a huge blessing. For most of us, our jobs keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. But that's not the case for everyone. Did you know that often than not, adult clients at UMD come to our homeless shelter already employed? They aren't homeless because they aren't working. A number of our clients have not one job...but 2 to 3! Regardless of a person's job status, our Workforce Development team is available to help all UMD residents navigate life in a homeless shelter by finding and keeping their employment. You can help these workers today by making a gift to UMD. Give here: https://urbanministriesofdurham-bloom.kindful.com/
