Opus Art Supplies donates over $8,000 to Union Gospel Mission

Vancouver, BC—Union Gospel Mission thanks Opus Art Supplies and their customers for the generous donation of $8,248 towards Art from the Heart, UGM’s therapeutic art program. For the last three years, Art from the Heart has given women on the Downtown Eastside the opportunity to share their stores and heal through a restorative art process. Opus matched every dollar donated, and the funds will go towards providing women with much needed art supplies for next year’s courses.

Union Gospel Mission has been feeding hope and changing the lives of men, women, and children for over 70 years. Through its 9 locations in Metro Vancouver and the city of Mission, UGM provides counseling, education, safe housing, and alcohol and drug recovery to those struggling with poverty, homelessness, and addiction. The heart of the mission is to demonstrate God’s transforming love, ease the burden of the most vulnerable, rebuild the lives of the broken, and offer dignity to those who feel cast aside. UGM is a proud member of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities and the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions. For more, visit www.ugm.ca.
