Recently, I was blessed with the opportunity to serve at the Union Gospel Mission’s annual Christmas Meal. On Saturday, December 9, UGM staff, donors, and volunteers served over 2,600 meals to anyone who needed some warm food or a place to sit for a while.
When my good friend Mavic (who works for UGM) invited me to serve at the 77th annual Christmas Dinner, I re-arranged a couple of things on my schedule so I could do it. As someone who preaches “walking the talk”, it’s very important for me to serve in addition to inviting others to do so.
Truth be told, Mavic invited me as a “social media influencer” so I could post reflections about my experience afterwards to help spread the word about UGM’s good work.
