Last week Open Arms Mission emailed an update to Welland churches with the following information: “Our non-perishable food stocks are significantly depleted and this is a result of a 150% in demand for food in the Welland community. The Welland Food Drive gave us $30,000 for food yet each week we give out between $5000-$7000 worth of food. In less than a month, we will be out of pasta sauce and other key items.”
In response to this great need, Open Arms Mission is planning a pop-up food drive.
Brian and Sinikka Speck are offering their home as a drop-off location for donations from members of St. Matthew’s.
Food Drive for Open Arms Mission
Starting today (March 8) for 2 weeks (anytime, any day)
34 Pinehurst Drive, Welland
Front porch drop off (ring doorbell, and the Specks will take care of storing the donations and delivering to Open Arms Mission)
Thank you, Brian and Sinikka, for your efforts, and to everyone else for your support!
