Harvest of Crafts Sale 2017 Success and Thanks!

I would just like to report briefly on the success of our October 28th UCW sponsored Harvest of Crafts Sale.

Despite a bit of a wet day, I would like to let you all know what a wonderful day we had with many thanks going to so many people from our UCW and our congregation for all the help they provided to make our Sale such a success!

We want to thank all of our Community Craft Vendors too for participating! We had several new Vendors this year and from all reports everyone was pleased with their day.

There was such a positive atmosphere all around the building with friends greeting friends, shopping in our UCW Craft Rooms, with our Vendors, in the Country Kitchen, Attic Treasures and Books as well as enjoying refreshments in our All Day Cafe.

We want to thank all those who came to our Sale too and helped us raise nearly $9,000.00! These funds help to support our church as well as a number of important local and international charities.

Thank you everyone so much!

We have just had our post Sale Evaluation and I am happy to invite you to set aside Saturday, October 27th, 2018 for next year’s Harvest of Crafts Sale!

Blessings,

Katie Powell
Chair of Harvest of Crafts Sale

Chase the Chill

A random act of kindness

Chase the Chill 2018

Members of SUC and their friends have generously supported Chase the Chill for the past 2 winters and the plan is to continue this outreach project in January 2018. Scarves will be hung in suitable areas along Queen Street so that anyone who needs or likes a scarf will be welcome to take one free of charge and wrap themselves up in it!

Yarn is available for knitting or crocheting a scarf 6” to 8” in width and approximately 48” in length. Completed projects can be return to Streetsville United any time before January  24!

There are many creative ways to provide outreach into the community and to that end other opportunities will be considered in 2018.

Emergency Food Cupboard Assistance Program

November 22, 2015 Update:

In October our church helped 14 people.

This week we are completely out of: men’s aftershave, men’s deodorant, hot chocolate. We also need: shampoo, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, canned pasta, beef stew, peas, soup and cereal.

Please no expired items. Your HELP is needed and appreciated.

We make up cleaning supply & personal care kits and these are available to the clients every 2nd visit.

We appreciate your donations in helping the less fortunate and those who are unemployed, physically & mentally disabled and addicted. We cannot run this outreach without the help of our church family as we depend on YOU to keep the cupboards well stocked. Therefore, when doing your weekly grocery shopping please pick up a few of the items on our weekly bulletin list of needed items.

Thank you for supporting this hands-on OUTREACH to the community.
