SEPTEMBER ACTIVITY NEWS FROM SVDPOUR LADY OF GUADALUPE CONFERENCE

- Emergency Food Hampers were delivered to 11 homes in Campbell River. 19 Adults and 14 Children received food assistance, consisting of a prepared hamper of a variety of perishable and non-perishable food items. Brochures are included to direct those in need of further assistance to various community organizations and services

- 3 Welcoming Kits and 3 Food Hampers were assembled and delivered to women and their children transitioning to Rose Harbour. Our Welcoming Kits provide such much needed items as small kitchen appliances, place settings, cookware, bedding, towels, toiletries, and other household items (just to name a few). Women in transition and their children often arrive with just the clothes on their backs.

- 31 Food Hampers helped provide food security to 85 people and 32 pets residing in the village of Gold River and on the First Nations Reserve in Tsaxana. The opening of the Gold River Food Network (former Food Bank building) will be able to provide emergency food supplies in between the monthly hamper distributions

- September saw an increase in the number of people and pets who received food assistance in the village of Tahsis. 92 people and 15 pets.

- The Executive Director of Second Chance Recovery House for Men sent along their September report, which not only included the monthly statistics but heartfelt thanks to the volunteers, donors and supporters of Second Chance (SVDP included) who show their clients just how much their community cares for them. To quote from this report: “Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do for another soul, to assist some portion of those suffering in this world, will help immensely”

- SVDP food supplies for Sunday Lunches served at the downtown Community Kitchen continued this month. Statistics on the number of people served a hot, nutritious Sunday meal in September will be included in next month’s activity report

- The wife and sons of our Adopted Family made a visit to Morocco to spend time with her ailing mother. Unfortunately their return to Canada was delayed by nearly a month due to Covid immigration laws for returning Canadian Permanent Residents. They recently arrived home and the family is reunited. On line studies for the wife and the 2 boys, and a full work load for the husband will be keeping this family very busy in the months ahead.

God’s wonders never cease.
Your support of our many programs continue to provide help and hope to a great many in our local community and on the North Island

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU!
