STARFISH BACKPACK PROGRAM
This program began with the Rotary Club and became an iniatiative of the the United Chuch Women – Bread not Stones – taking action to end child poverty.
The Rotary Club provides the bulk of funding and partners such as the UCW, and the Trinity Memorial Congregation provide volunteers and some extra funding. The aim is to feed 400 children who have been identified as not having enough food to eat during the weekends. This year 236 children and their families are being helped through this program.
We know at first hand that our work is not in vain. If you are interested in joining our team of volunteers meet us in the downstairs kitchen on Thursday mornings at 9:15 am or call Linda Garrett @ 604-746-7796. If you wish to financially support the program indicate Starfish Backpack Program on your offering envelope.
