Prior to the latest stay-at-home order, churches were asked for personal care items for Community Ministries: to include shampoo and conditioner, body wash(in small containers), medium and large sized men and women’s underwear, towels, disposable razors. All items to be new. We now have a collection box at the servery door at the back of the church to receive these items. When it is again allowed, they will be delivered for distribution.
Ongoing Initiatives and Worthy Causes
We regularly receive requests from different Diocesan, community groups and individuals, requesting financial support for both Outreach and programming ministries. Many are worthy projects but we cannot support them all so please be understanding if your particular interest does not receive funding directly from St. Helen’s. Our efforts at this time are to support the Community Ministries of the Diocese of Ottawa, the food banks and to respond to other opportunities as they become known and financial resources are available.
“Muffins Made with Love” for The Well’s Breakfast Programme will resume when it is safe to do so.
