July/August Outreach – Kanata Food Cupboard School Supplies:

The school year is just coming to a close, but the Kanata Food Cupboard is thinking ahead to next fall.  Purchasing school supplies can put additional financial stress on families.  The Kanata Food Cupboard provides school supplies to families in need in the community.  Items needed are scissors for primary grades, pencil sharpeners, combination locks, and calculators suitable for high school students.  We will be collecting items in the Outreach Bin during July and August.  Last day will be in early August.

 Friday Coffee: Summer schedule:  Friday morning coffee will move to Tim Horton’s on Hazeldean at Terry Fox beginning June 30th. We will be there at 10:00am every Friday in the summer and will return to the church lounge on Friday, Sept. 8th.
