Each year we choose local initiatives to support with the money raised from our fundraising activities. This year we expect to support:
∙ St. Thomas Food Bank
∙ Local Youth at Risk
We also work with the YWCA and other local service providers, to support youth aged 16 to 24 living independently.
Our wish is to provide these youth with some basic supports, coupled with an awareness that they are a part of a community that wants them to survive and thrive. Our main initiative is providing heart-felt and homemade holiday gifts.
“Deep within us all there is an amazing sanctuary of the soul, a holy place, a Divine Center, a speaking Voice, to which we may continuously return. Eternity is at our hearts, pressing upon our time-torn lives, warming us with intimations of an astounding destiny, calling us home to Itself“ A Testament of Devotion, a Quaker classic by Thomas R. Kelly (1893 – 1941)
