Hope for Change

To Feed Hope This Thanksgiving

Many of us are thankful to have the opportunity to gather with loved ones this year for Thanksgiving. After the ever-changing restrictions we have faced the past 18 months, we can truly appreciate the value of connection. This holiday is a time for reflection of our gratitude for family, friends, shelter, health, and much more. We would like to give thanks through giving back to those who need it most. The Ottawa Mission has continued to help the less fortunate in our community to make impactful change in their lives, without ceasing to offer their services during the global pandemic. We continue to be grateful for the support and trust of our clients. As a token of our appreciation, we have made a donation to the Ottawa Mission to feed 150 people in need of a warm meal this Thanksgiving on your behalf.

FAMSAC Food Cupboard

Neighbours Helping Neighbours

This holiday season we are reminded of how fortunate we are to have our health and financial security during these uncertain times. We are excited to have the opportunity to share this good fortune in our community.

FAMSAC Food Cupboard began in 1969 to provide food assistance to the communities of Bayshore, Bells Corners, Crystal Beach, Craig Henry, Manordale, and Trend Village during the Christmas season. The program has expanded over the years in response to steadily growing demand. FAMSAC is currently providing between 60-80 food hampers to local families every month. This year we have sponsored 10 families for the holiday season which provides a special Christmas hamper containing a turkey and all the trimmings.

We are continually thankful for your trust and support this year and would like to wish you a wonderful holiday season.

 

 

Serving Hope This Thanksgiving

Lifelong Change Starts With A Meal

 

When we think about the Thanksgiving holiday, thoughts of turkey, dressing, and pumpkin pie fill our minds. However, Thanksgiving is a timely reminder to pause and give thanks for our family, health and wellbeing in our lives. As we approach a different looking thanksgiving year, we wanted to give thanks and help those who might need it most during the COVID-19 public health crisis. The Ottawa Mission continues to care for the most vulnerable members of our community, and has not closed their doors or stop accepting new clients who need support. We are continually grateful for the support and trust our clients have in us. To show our thanks to you, we made a donation this week to the Ottawa Mission to provide 150 warm meals to people in need this weekend.
