It is the time of year again where we get ready to serve up a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings to our friends at The Urban. There are opportunities to sign up for donations of food items, but we will also need cash donations as we will be purchasing turkeys and a few other items which, for this particular dinner, we realized it is simpler to go to a warehouse store to purchase the larger items. We will also require extra hands for prep and clean up–we all know, a turkey dinner is quite labour intensive. So if you would like to join us that night, please let Terri or Debbie know and we can make car pool arrangements.
If you are interested in other giving opportunities at The Urban, Rhonda has let Grace know that any bedding, towels, sleeping bags, air mattresses, are all very needed and appreciated. Sleeping bags for the true homeless who do not feel safe in shelters, extra bedding for homeless who are able to ‘couch surf’, and air mattresses for those who are able to offer a place to sleep to someone less fortunate, but have no bed to give them. As always, any toiletry items for men or women; feminine hygiene products etc.. Other Christmases we have brought special ‘treat’ items, like flavoured coffee cream, or chocolates. However the spirit moves you, your generosity is ALWAYS appreciated at the Urban. Thank you! For all that you do and for being the light of Christ in the world!
