Volunteers are the backbone of the Olympia Union Gospel Mission. Volunteers provide support in various ways: serving meals, making sandwiches for our clients, driving and delivering furniture and household goods, and ministering the love of God one-on-one to those in need. The harvest is great and many more are needed. Consider sharing your time in this work.
