A message from Cheryl, Executive Director
“Our Village Cares in the Season of Hope” is raising hope and reaching out in our Village this holiday season. Our Lincoln neighbours in need are facing the most difficult season of all. Without sufficient incomes or support, many will remain food and shelter insecure. While all around is joyous with the coming celebration more than 12% of our community know anxiety and despair, with futures uncertain. We’re working now through the holidays to see that our neighbours too can share their hopes and joys over a Season of Hope festive dinner (and more) with their children, parents, and partners. PLEASE SPONSOR, or DONATE for a Family $250, Senior $75, or Child $50 (or other amount) so that we may deliver a Holiday Food Hamper and Gifts to our Lincoln neighbours in need.

Food insecurity - not having enough money to buy food - is a serious public health problem in Ontario; 13% of households in Ontario are food insecure; 63% of households who are food insecure have employment as their main income; 59% of households receiving social assistance are food insecure. 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.

Together we build community. This year GivingTuesday is Nov 29. Throughout the year with our volunteers we work to make our village a more inclusive sharing community. GivingTuesday is an opportunity to recognize that each of us can contribute to its betterment, for all of our neighbours.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good: make someone smile, help a neighbour or stranger, show up for an issue you care about, or give some of what you have to those in need. Over the past nine years it has since grown into a global movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
This year Canada is participating alongside more than 80 countries worldwide, rallying around one unifying theme: TOGETHER WE ... GIVE, THANK, STAND, HELP, HEAL
