For the past few years, the First United Church has been participating in a Reverse Advent Calendar to collect items for our local Food Bank.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people that access our local Food Bank is at an all-time high and as a result, the Salvation Army is in need of extra assistance in making sure they are able to reach everyone that needs it.
As a result, this year, we are going a bit further and extending the Month of Giving to also include November. It is hoped that the Month of Giving, in addition to our regular weekly and monthly collection items, will help increase the amount of items that we regularly donate.
The calendars are posted below for anyone wishing to participate in this project.
Items can be collected on a weekly basis in church. If you are attending our online services, please phone the church to arrange for a time to drop-off.
