Caring & Sharing 2019

2021 Christmas Caring & Sharing

Caring and Sharing is our local Christmas outreach initiative.  A wonderful way to get friends, neighbours and family involved to provide Christmas to those less fortunate right here in our community.

Last year’s Caring & Sharing was a tremendous success.  We have expanded our ministry in hopes that you will respond just as generously.   Our ministry partners this year are the JFJ Hope Centre, the Boys & Girls Club of Peel and the Knights Table.

This year we have committed to:

  • For the JFJ Hope Centre Christmas party, we are providing 85 sets of pajamas, 25 gifts for Dads and 35 gingerbread kits.

  • On Saturday, December 11th from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon we will be having a Drive-By/Drop-Off to fill the JFJ Centre Care Cupboard.

  • For the Boys & Girls Club of Peel, we will providing Christmas in its entirety for 5 families.

  • For the Knight’s Table we will be providing grocery gift cards.

  • Fulfilling needs other needs as they arise and as we are able ~ the more funds we receive, the more we can help others.

What Can You Do to Help? To keep everyone safe, a small group of individuals are doing the shopping and we are humbly asking you to help fund this ministry.  You can do this by making a financial donation and clearly marking it “Caring & Sharing”.  It will be included in your 2021.  Donations can be dropped off at the church, e-transferred, mailed or pick-up.  For more information please contact either Jean Jamieson at 416-457-5686 or Martha Whittaker at 416-420-3765.

And there is more...

Our recent Drive-By/Drop-Offs have been a blast ~ who would have known?  Please consider supporting our December 11th Drive-By/Drop-Off as we help fill the Care Cupboard at JFJ.   To keep everyone safe, simply pop your trunk and we will collect your donations.  Help us spread the word among your family, friends, neighbours, classmates, teammates ~ we would love to see you on December 11th ~ albeit from a safe distance.  Need some suggestions:

We are so grateful to those who have generously provided for Caring and Sharing in the past and are just as hopeful this year when the need is even greater.

Why not ask your family, friends and neighbours if they would like to get involved?  Compassion and generosity go hand in hand.
