Bags of Hope for Union Gospel Mission


We have been challenged to create 100 Bags of Hope!

A Bag of Hope is given out by Union Gospel Mission and is filled with hygiene items, non-perishable food, and a note of encouragement. It is often one of the first things a guest is given. We will be collecting assembled Bags of Hope now through November 22. Items for each bag should be placed in a gallon ziplock bag and dropped off at Salem in the large grey box in the Narthex. If you come during business hours and the doors are locked, just ring the doorbell and we will let you in!


Below is a list of items you can consider including in your Bag of Hope:

  • Body Lotion
  • Nail Clippers
  • Band-aids
  • Tissues
