Why Partner With UGM

Here’s why some of your Inland Northwest neighbors choose to partner with UGM to help the homeless.

 

Bob McConkey

“We try to lead by example. I support the Mission because I believe its model is biblical, and I believe that Christ calls us to not turn our backs on the less fortunate -- on the widows, on the orphans, on the poor -- but to serve them. I believe the Mission is doing that, and I believe the business community has an obligation to also serve the less fortunate. The Mission is a great conduit for us.”

“God called each of us to use our time, treasure or talents to give back to his people. It is such a privilege to serve others in the community that I love.”

“I was starting to feel a little cynical about homeless people... Now, I just pray each time I’m here that I will be able to impact one person in some small way.”

“As a real estate appraiser and mortgage broker, I know the value of a healthy community, and I sincerely believe that by giving to the Union Gospel Mission, we are helping to make Spokane a better place to live. A community that cares for its poor and broken is a better community for everyone.”

“That’s why there’s such a cooperation in the ministry here...because all of the parts of the Body of Christ, not under one roof, we’re all doing what we’re supposed to be doing as God calls us to UGM.”
