Welcome Inn Community Centre is a pretty special place that builds community and helps people in times of need. There are a lot of extra stresses on people this time of year, and that really takes a toll on Welcome Inn’s Food Bank shelves.
The good news is there are lots of ways you can help fill up those shelves:
Please help our private sponsorship and reunification of a family from Syria.
We are part of a group of friends and neighbors in partnership with The Commons church in Hamilton, Ontario who have come to know a special family that have settled in our community. We are sponsoring the eldest son of this family who still resides in a refugee camp in Jordan, along with his wife and four children. We are seeking financial donations to support our sponsorship which will go towards living expenses for one year upon their arrival. 100% of funds donated will go to this family and donations are tax deductible. Thank you kindly in advance for your contribution: $10, $50, $500, $5000…. any amount you can manage helps our collective efforts to reunite a family separated by this horrible war.
