We have been working with the Veterans Administration for almost 3 years now. Each month case workers with the VA contact us personally with various needs for our Veterans. Most of these needs are rent/mortgage assistance, utilities and car payments. On occasion a homeless vet will need a cell phone to access services available. We try and acomodate each need represented by the VA to Gung Ho. Gung Ho Ministries will also outfit a Veteran with a new wardrobe and or business attire.
Union Gospel Mission
Each week they pick up donations for their thrift store. We also donate childrens and womens clothing and hygiene items to the UGM womens and childrens shelter.
Portland Metro Church
Twice a month GHM volunteers make over 300 sandwiches. The sandwiches along with clothing items from the Boutique are personally delivered to PDX Metro Church in NE Portland. The church hands out the sandwiches and clothing goods to the underpriveledged and working poor in the community.
Each week Gemtext Recycling picks up textiles by the pound. These are clothing items that may be stained, ripped or torn. GHM receives approximatly 10 cents a pound.
Gung Ho Ministries recognize that there are many organizations that align with our mission and we work with many other organizations in a coordinated manner to maximize our success.
