Harvest of Hope - Thanksgiving Hamper Program 2022 - Sept 14 - October 10
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.
Village of Hope Niagara, with our team of more than 80 local volunteers, provides access to our foodbank – benefitting more than 1500 people throughout the year, offering home food delivery for mobility affected people, a healthy snack program for school age children, social services navigation assistance to connect clients with programs of assistance, as well as shelter and utility subsidies with independent resolution-mediation. Registration of clients with Village of Hope Niagara has more than doubled since 2019, and continues to surge.
It takes a Village... Please Donate if you are able.
