Thank you to long-standing member Kevin Bezanson for this insightful and and eloquent appeal to compassion.
Thank you to everyone who has donated their time and support to Holy Trinity’s COVID relief efforts. Holy Trinity continues to play an important role as a centre of compassion and support in the midst of this epidemic. We are thankful for the outpouring of donations that you have very generously made available to folks who need them.
We are now serving 150-200 meals a day, and making food available to take away at our West door between 11-1pm daily. We have also distributed over 70 tents, and many more sleeping bags, hygiene items, and cold weather gear. We see how essential these items are becoming for survival as folks on the street, who are facing gridlock in finding appropriate accommodations or places to isolate. We are also seeing more and more housed people who do not have access to food coming for assistance. As almost all services are shutting down, or operating with limited means, these folks need our continued witness and support.Read More »Week 4 update
