The Outreach Committee is a caring group of people who help in both our local community and internationally. Through our Helping Hands Fund, those in our congregation or local community in need are provided with support in times of strife. If you know someone who could benefit from a helping hand, .
In addition to the Helping Hands Fund, the Outreach Committee supports the Bridges Homeless Shelter by organizing and executing a ham and scalloped potato dinner. If you or someone you know would like to help out or make a donation, .
The Cambridge Food Bank is also supported by the Outreach Committee. The committee holds weekly food drives, spring and fall food drives, and a White Gift Service at Christmas. Due to Covid19, the Cambridge Food Bank prefers a monetary donation for 2020.
Fundraisers for international organizations are held throughout the year. The Life-Line to Lebanon Fundraiser raised $3,435.00 to help the families of our newcomers with food for a year and purchasing two plane tickets for the parents of the newcomer family to get them out of Beirut and bring them to Canada.
Our Christmas Fundraiser is for Mission & Services to reach our 2020 goal. Together United Churches across Canada accomplish three goals: save lives, inspire purpose, and build a better world. You can donate, as you are able, by cheque made out to Saint Luke's United Church, or an e-transfer to email@example.com. Either way, add a message that your donation is for the Mission & Service Fundraiser.
The committee warmly welcomes any new members or ideas.
