Lenten Outreach A Huge Success!
St Thomas has out done itself this year in its generous giving to our Lenten Outreach project. This year we raised money for “Families Branching Out”. ”Families Branching Out” is a program run out of Collingwood Neighbourhood House and it is the mandate of the program to provide early intervention for children up to six years old. The aim of the program is to provide good nutrition, family support and educational development. The program’s clients include families in need, single parent families, refugee families and First Nations families.
This year we raised $4,515 for the program and a part of these proceeds will go to a field trip for the children to Science World. The program Coordinator at Collingwood House said that many of the children have never been to Science World and rarely get the chance to travel as a group on a chartered bus. We would like to thank all of you who gave so generously to this wonderful project.
