Church Fall Outreach Project
As its fall Outreach project, our church is once again supporting the We Care kits program run by Canadian Lutheran World Relief. Our program runs from November 17th to November 24th.
Details of the We Care kits that we recommend are described below, and kit bags are available in the Narthex.
We hope as many of you as possible will participate.

We Care program, go to We Care

But Outreach is more than just writing a cheque, although financial assistance is always required. It’s about connecting with the mission and hearing the stories. Pathways Non-Profit Community Developments, a joint venture of Solel Synagogue, Streetsville United Church, and the Unitarian Congregation of Mississauga changes the lives of hundreds of people in Mississauga beyond housing, providing a safe and caring environment for the residents of its non-profit apartment buildings.
In February, members of the congregation walked or volunteered during The Coldest Night of the Year raising money for The Dam.
Outreach at Streetsville United is not limited to the work of the Outreach Committee. Our church is part of the Northwest Constituent Group that is actively working on sponsoring Syrian refugees to Mississauga. We run the Streetsville Emergency Food Cupboard which is open Tuesdays from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. Our UCW groups support a lengthy list of outreach projects, financially and with other resources – casseroles, layettes, toiletries, to name a few – for various ministries throughout Mississauga.
