A message from Cheryl, Executive Director
Harvest of Hope - Thanksgiving Hamper Program 2022 - Sept 14 - October 15
We're thankful for our community and the support it affords us to assist our neighbours in need.
Now through October 15, A Village Gives Thanks during our Harvest of Hope
We’re setting a place at the table for our neighbours in need this year, that they may find hope and give thanks over a Family Thanksgiving Dinner.
Our Sponsor a Family, will provide a Thanksgiving Food Hamper with all of the trimmings (and post-dinner leftovers for some time) to families in need in Lincoln. (A donation of $100 to sponsor a family is suggested, though donations at every level make our programs possible.)
Persistent economic insecurity in our community has seen family registrations at Village of Hope Niagara remain uncomfortably high, with so many for the first time in their lives seeking assistance from our foodbank.
In our community of Lincoln, more than 12%, 1 in 8 among our neighbours, are going hungry a part of each month. With food costs up by 9.7 per cent, and shelter costs up by 7.4 per cent, seniors, children, and their families in our community are dramatically affected.
It takes a Village...
. . .
September continues with Village of Hope Niagara's Awareness and Support raising for alleviation of food insecurity in Lincoln. In our community more than 12%, 1 in 8 among our neighbours are going hungry a part of each month. With food costs up by 9.7 per cent, and shelter costs up by 7.4 per cent seniors, children, and their families in our community of Lincoln are each affected. Village of Hope Niagara, with our team of local volunteers, provides access to a foodbank, distributing 6500kg/15000lbs benefitting more than 1500 people each month, and that's just the beginning of our assistance programs.
. . .
This year will continue to challenge our community, our health, our opportunities, our futures face so much uncertainty but those who find themselves in need of counsel, and a hand up can always count on this Village of Hope Niagara to do all we are able to find a way. Already, new registrations at Village of Hope Niagara are increasing, and our Village of Hope Niagara home deliveries of much needed food will tax our food bank reserves. We're always in need of community supported food supplies, if you are able.
