Car for food not bombs.png

Volunteers Wanted! Do you have an hour and a car to help fight hunger in Kitchener? Extra help is needed every Saturday during the summer months at Food Not Bombs. This organization uses donated vegetables and a fruits to make a delicious lunch that is served outside of Kitchener City Hall. Leftover cooked and fresh food is given to those who have a need.  You can sign up on St. Andrew’s Facebook page or contact Mark Johnson, chair of our Local Outreach Committee at markdjohnson@gmail. Driving times each Saturday are:
•    11 am-11:30 pick up donated vegetables at Central Fresh Market and drop them off at The Working Centre in Kitchener (TWC);
•    1:15 pm-1:30 pm pick up cooked food at TWC and drop off at Kitchener City Hall (KCH);
•    3:15 to 3:30 to pick up pots/pans/dishes at KCH and drop them off at the TWC to be cleaned. 
You can sign up for one, two or all three driving times. Donations of unsweetened canned fruit (for crisp) or clean containers for take-out soup (eg. Clean margarine containers) can also be dropped off at the church office. Driving not your thing…there are other opportunities just ask. Your support this summer will make a difference!

Looking for the perfect gift for the person who has everything? Why not give the gift of a donation in their honour to your favourite St. Andrew’s Mission. For those who watch us on television for a birthday or anniversary you can make a donation to the TV ministry of St. Andrew’s in their name. A donation to C.E. or Youth, the bulletin, the library, Stephen Ministry, VIP, or a donation to support our church buildings all show your love of our church being shared with loved ones and friends. Cards are available from the office to send to the recipients to let them know of your generous and thoughtful gift.
