The Mission & Outreach focus for the month of January is

the Salvation Army - Kits for the Homeless

Now that we are into the new year and our holiday season is past, it is time to focus on some of those less fortunate than us! We are once again completing kits for the homeless which we give to the Salvation Army for distribution. (And yes..., there are homeless in our city). Each kit must be rolled into a full size bath towel and secured with 2 elastics. Thus, the number of towels that we have more or less determines the number of kits we are able to assemble. The following items must be in each kit: toothpaste, toothbrush, 1pr of socks, comb/brush, soap in a ziplock bag, razor, shaving cream, shampoo, pen, notepad, face cloth, deodorant, a small pkg. of tissues. Optional items include: conditioner, bandaids, lip balm, lotion, hairspray or gel, and gum/candies.
Please consider giving generously so that we can continue to fulfill our mission.




 


 

Rohingya people—as many as 900,000 by some estimates—are fleeing to Bangladesh, one of the poorest nations in the world, with little capacity to respond to their needs and numbers. The United Church works with several churches and agencies throughout Asia. Mission & Service partner ACT Alliance, in part supported by contributions from The United Church of Canada, is responding. ACT Alliance is focused on food security, water and sanitation, health and nutrition, and shelter. These needs become more urgent with each new arrival and the approach of winter.

Please include the displaced Rohingya people in your prayers. We are also accepting donations.  You may click on the image above or here to access further information. The Government of Canada has announced it will match eligible donations made between August 25 and November 28, 2017.
