Christmas is the giving season and there are many opportunities to give: we continue to appeal for the Canadian Food Grains Bank, an ecumenical organization that deals with issues of hunger and food all over the world. Donations are matched with federal funds, so the gifts are multiplied many times over!
There is also the special appeal for the victims of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, which has to date raised about $100 000.00 If you would like to respond to this need, you can donate online through the church's secure webpage, www.united-church.ca; with a phone call with a credit card to 1-800-268-2738 ext. 2738; or by mail with a cheque to: The United Church of Canada, emergency Response, 3250 Bloor St. W., Suite 300, Toronto ON M8X 2Y4.
