DRIVE-BY, DROP-OFF FOOD DRIVE & FUNDRAISING EVENTS

St. John United Church began Drive-By, Drop-off Food Drives and Fundraising opportunities during the time of Covid-19 restrictions.

The food drives allowed everyone the space to safely social distance while wearing their masks but still do something for those in need. Vehicles could be seen along Queensdale Ave as participants dropped their bags of groceries onto the awaiting table and greeting team.

Together, with our neighbouring community, we were able to bolster the supplies at Neighbour-2-Neighbour with over 3,400 lbs of donated food supplies and over $500 cash accumulated through four Drive-By, Drop-off events.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time or resources to help Neighbour-2-Neighbour during this time of great need!

Some of the other Fundraising opportunities that accompanied the Food Drives were:

Sew & Sews: Accumulatively, Sew & Sews were able to raise $2,000 for their special outreach project.

Cash for Kenya! S.O.C.K.S. (Supporting Orphan Children Kenya Schools) Approximately $8,000 was raised for families in Kenya. These funds provided basic food supplies for many vulnerable families and kept a roof over their head. For further information on S.O.C.K.S. please see their website at www.sockscanada.org.

Wesley Centre: Bags and bags of warm coats, scarves, mittens and gloves were gathered through the Drive-By, Drop-off events.

A special thank you goes to our team of volunteers and the community at large for rallying together to help so many in need. We could not have done it without you!
