We Help Families

Hunger is not just a problem for the homeless.

Every day in our community hundreds of men, women, and children face the prospect of going hungry. Hunger is not just a problem for the homeless; it also touches individuals and families whose low incomes often demand that they make a choice between buying food and paying rent and utility bills.

To help in the fight against hunger, the Union Rescue Mission provides almost 100,000 annually through the dining room and food boxes giving to needy families.

Donations of food, diapers, and baby formula are always welcome, as they are a vital part of our Community Outreach Ministry helping families in need. To learn how you can help, call (316) 687-4673, or e-mail receptionist@urmwichita.org.

FREE FOOD BOXES GIVEN AWAY WEEKLY

Reaching out to the community, the Union Rescue gives away free food boxes weekly to families who are “living on the edge.” Many times these are the working poor or disabled persons who have trouble making ends meet. Families benefiting from our FREE food boxes are struggling families with children, single moms with young children, and quite often senior citizens on fixed incomes who simply can’t stretch their dollars far enough.

Families can “shop” the aisles of the URM “store” selecting from the grocery items that meet their family’s dietary needs.  Program men assist these families as they fill their carts and load them in their cars.

Often, we have volunteers from the County Extension office that share recipes and samples with the clients.

We have trained counselors who volunteer their time each week to meet with each family to share the Good News and offer the Plan of Salvation each time a food box is given.

Please call (316) 687-4673 at 9:00 a.m. on Monday morning to schedule an appointment for that Wednesday or Thursday afternoon.

FREE BABY FORMULA AND DIAPERS

One of the most costly expenses for mothers, especially single mothers, are diapers and formula. Without these necessities, it is nearly impossible for them to take care of their tiny babies and young toddlers.

In our effort to reach out to our community, the Union Rescue Mission gives away FREE diapers, baby wipes and formula every week to young mothers who come to our door for help.
