Your Outreach Fund Donations making a difference…
Brenda Jones, a member of our congregation’s Community Outreach Committee, recently shared with the congregation that four cheques have been passed along to the four local charities that our Outreach fund is supporting this year.
We are happy to announce that Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Durham, Community Care Durham, Durham Youth Services (Joanne’s House), and North House all received cheques of $2500 this December.
This was made possible by your generous donations that go into the Outreach Fund through your weekly offerings, your support of monthly Souper Sundays, your support of the annual golf tournament and, more recently, your support of the poinsettia fundraiser and post-Choralfest bake sale.
Also, well-over $2000 has been sent along to Operation Scugog this year and our recent collection of gift cards, in support of Operation Scugog’s Christmas campaign, resulted in over $1400 worth of gift cards being delivered to the foodbank for distribution. All of this means that well over $12,000 of Outreach initiatives have been shared back into our community.
Thank you for your tremendous support in making a caring difference!
