We will now be assisting our visitors every Friday(by appt.)  Without additional sources of food and funding however, we will not be able to respond meaningfully to this crisis. We would therefore be pleased to receive donations of non-perishable foods or cash to our food bank. Charitable receipts will be provided for cash donations of any amount. Donations may be dropped off at the north door (back door) of the church between Monday and Friday, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The church office phone number is 905 668-4022.
