Out of the Cold

 

From November 1st to March 31st of every year, several St. Catharines churches of all denominations provide a hot meal each evening of each week to anyone in the community without adequate food or shelter. Seven churches donate space, each one being responsible for one evening a week. This allows people in need to know with certainty where to go for meals on a specific night throughout the cold season.

The number of guests varies from 100 to 150 nightly. Those who are homeless can remain for the night. Donations of warm jackets, sweaters, underwear, socks, toques, mitts, as well as toiletries and razors are always needed and welcomed.

Mountainview volunteers have been involved in this program for approximately 10 years, preparing and serving the meal, in addition to cleaning up in the evening and then again in the morning.

In 2015, we are responsible for three Wednesday evenings monthly, starting in January, with our final dinner on Wednesday, March 11.  We help serve at St. George’s Anglican Church, 83 Church Street (905-682-9232). With numbers near 150 each week, we can always use help.  Think about helping out – even once! We always need ten to twelve people for the meal service, from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.
