During the holiday season every year, our Young Adults coordinate care packages to deliver to the homeless and those in need to help them survive during the cold weather. The packages typically contain brand new winter gear and clothing, hygienic and cleaning applicants, a thermos or beverage bottle, a restaurant gift card and a warm meal which are all packaged into a re-usable, environmentally friendly shopping bag or drawstring bag. Members of our Centre purchase and donate these items to use in the packages or provide funding for the young adults to purchase the items needed to create the package. Over 20 packages are usually created from these donations each year to distribute to those in need. Adults at our centre will also collect blankets to add to the care package initiatives in order to keep the homeless warm during the harsh winters.
