Thank you to all who brought your donations of produce and other foodstuffs to offer at the altar on Thanksgiving Sunday. Lynne and Gordon kindly transported it to the Harvest Project, which needs approximately $750,000 of food annually to meet the needs of its clients, many of whom are seniors living on limited means. If you would like to learn more about the Harvest Project's food programs and the other ways in which it offers "a hand up, not a hand out" to our community neighbours, please click here.
Here is a snapshot of what the Harvest Project accomplished in 2018:
- 4,600+ client-care coaching & drop-in sessions
- 5,500+ food hampers & emergency bags of food
- Food-recovery program that redistributed fresh and non-perishable food valued at over $750,000
- Clothes For Change Thrift Shop – clothing support for clients plus retail sales to public
- 130 active volunteers and 19,000 volunteer-hours of service annually
Thanks, St. Clement's, for supporting this important work.
