“UGM Dallas is so excited to be one of the beneficiaries of Snacks for a Cause,” stated Bruce Butler, CEO of UGM Dallas. “They offer an exceptional gift idea that is perfect for the holidays, birthdays, graduation, as thank you gifts and even corporate gifts that allow the givers to also help out a local non-profit.”

Offering delivery in the continental United States, Snacks for a Cause is not only benefiting the homeless shelter through financial donations, but students of their discipleship program are learning job training skills through their involvement in packaging and shipping the gift boxes.

“One of the best things about UGM Dallas is their emphasis on job training that provides residents with a skill set which enables them to establish their independence,” noted Margaret McKoin, owner of Snacks for a Cause. “Each gift box is hand crafted with love from women who are getting a hand up not a handout. We are providing the ladies training on customer service, order processing, packaging, shipping and sales.”

About the Union Gospel Mission Dallas

Established in 1949, Union Gospel Mission Dallas (the Mission) has been restoring lives through the Word of Jesus Christ.  This faith-based nonprofit organization supports individuals and families experiencing homelessness with shelter, food and clothing, as well as a Discipleship and recovery program, vocational job training and development, state-licensed childcare services, medical care, transportation, substance abuse prevention, and transitional and permanent housing.

During the COVID-19 pandemic lock-down, UGM Dallas opened their doors to provide 24/7 shelter in place to all their clients, most of whom previously only used their facility as a night shelter. In 2020, the Mission provided 496,705 meals and 128,206 nights of shelter. UGM Dallas also served 113 veterans in their men’s shelter in 2020. The men, women and children that are served represent the living, breathing embodiment of the grace of change. The Mission is committed to doing everything possible to transform lives to end homelessness one person at a time.
