LOOKING BACK ON 2023 – HOW YOUR DONATIONS HELPED

Dear Parishioners:

2023 statistics are in. Your financial contributions, food donations and household donations helped us to help others in the following different and wonderful ways........

● We supported an immigrant family of five from Morocco with home visits and food gift cards. Our assistance is helping them to make positive strives towards a better life for themselves, and their three young children

● Emergency food hampers were delivered to 81 adult homes and 70 family homes 324 adults and 158 children received food assistance

● From January until August our monthly lunch supplies provided a daily lunch throughout the school year to 40-45 students of Cedar Elementary School.

● In December we partnered with Cedar staff to support their newest project – A Food Pantry Program for families in need. We also supported and participated in their annual Christmas dinner, for all students and staff.

● In partnership with Campbell River Baptist Church volunteers, an average of 300 people each month enjoyed a Sunday Lunch at the downtown community kitchen. Creative and hot, nourishing meals were prepared with our purchased meats.

● 15 “Welcome Kits along with Food Hampers were prepared and delivered to 16 adults and 12 children. In receipt of these kits were women and their children transitioning from domestic violence to safe shelter at Rose Harbour, and also individuals transitioning into stable housing.

● Second Chance Recovery House served 106 men in 2023. Their clients arrived from many geographical regions of Vancouver Island. They also offered extra support 707 times to past clients reaching out by phone, in person, or dropping in for daily group sessions. Our monthly meat contributions helped meet their protein requirements during their period of detox and recovery

● Our North Island Food Security Projects provided assistance to 72 households (117 people) in Tahsis. 27 homes and various community programs were supported in Gold River and Tsaxana each month (120 people). 50 households in Zeballos and surrounding First Nation communities (total of 65 adults and 60 children) received monthly food assistance. All communities also received pet food donations.

Your financial and food contributions, your household donations for our “Welcome Kits” and your prayers, helped make this all happen in 2023. We thank you for your past support, which helped us to reach out to so many. With your continued support we carry on in service to those in need in 2024.
