Holiday Meals Campaign Hope starts with $1.92 this holiday season!
We’re launching our Holiday Meals Campaign. And this is your opportunity to make a lasting impact in King County.
This is our city. It’s our home. And it’s our mission to make sure everyone has the chance for hope this holiday season. It starts with a $1.92 meal.
Find out how you're transforming lives
Geneva is giving thanks this holiday season ... for YOU!
Geneva spent too many holidays alone. On the run. Ready to give up. But when she came to the Mission and got a home cooked meal, she discovered God had a plan for her life.
Watch her story! This is the impact you can make through our Holiday Meals Campaign.
Do you have time to give? Here are a few ways to turn your hands-on efforts into changed lives.
In addition to food for our Thanksgiving meals throughout King County, we are also assembling food baskets for poor families and families transitioning out of homelessness. Here’s what’s needed most:
- Turkeys, ham, bacon
- Instant coffee and hot cocoa
- Canned corn, green beans, carrots, refried beans
- Canned fruit
- Canned chili & stew
- Pasta & pasta sauces
For men and women on the streets, the simple gift of a blanket can make a life and death difference. As the weather gets rainier and colder, we want to make sure everyone who spends the night unsheltered has a warm blanket. No one should die just because they aren’t quite ready to come to the Mission yet.

Young men in our Street Outreach program transform broken and discarded lumber into quality, urban inspired, one-of-a-kind furniture.
"With Jesus at our core, we endeavor to work through the damage of our own lives in order to be restored and transformed into something beautiful," shares Bobby Martin, Director of Street Outreach.
KIRO radio's Ron and Don ask, "Is the issue of homelessness solvable or at least manageable?"
"It is, but people have to be willing to help, Lilley said. Though people in Seattle tend to give money to homeless people directly, it might often be better to support a local organization that, in turn, will provide services and immediate needs," shares President Jeff Lilley.
