A message from Cheryl, Executive Director
May begins 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. Children, seniors, and families in our Village are each affected.
Village of Hope Niagara, with our team of local volunteers, provides access to a foodbank, distributing 6500kg/15000lbs to more than 1400 people each month, and that's just the beginning of our assistance programs.
The month culminates on Saturday 28th 10AM-12PM with our Lincoln-wide "pick-up box on porch" Food Drive. Our "needs" are the same as your own on shopping day. Pick up more of a few items, and on the 28th of the month, set it aside for collection, and a neighbour in need.
Visit Village of Hope Niagara on Thursday's (starting May 26) from 4PM to 5:30PM for a volunteer-prepared and served, pay what you can Dinner. We'd love to meet you.
Thanks to a generous and very supportive DONOR all May DONATIONS will be MATCHED, and are tax deductible and gratefully received at villageofhopeniagara.org ...We Make a Village by the Care We Share
This year will challenge our community again, 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.
