The Thanksgiving Exchange is a grocery store where low-income families can shop for their own Thanksgiving groceries at a very low price that they can afford, allowing them the dignity and job of providing for their family as well as selecting the items that they want. This year, things will be tweaked a little bit in order to keep everyone safe in the midst of a global pandemic.

Breaking the cycle of poverty and despair, one life at a time.
City Gospel Mission helps mend lives and create a bridge between people of faith and people who have lost hope. Founded in 1924, City Gospel Mission helps the homeless and hurting break the cycle of poverty and despair...one life at a time. We engage, equip and empower those in need with the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical skills and resources to achieve long-term life transormation and self-sufficiency.
Our programs and services are centered on caring, personal relationships focused in four key service areas: food and shelter, drug and alcohol recovery, youth development and job readiness and placement.
We collaborate with more than 350 local churches and 2,500 volunteers to annually serve more than 6800 adults and 9800 youth.
