Outreach

This page lists some of the outreach programmes we support. Whenever possible URLs have been included so that you can take a closer look at the programme and possibly consider giving them your support.

Local

Vankleek Hill Food Bank - The Vankleek Hill Food Bank is a once-a-month source of food for those in need. It is a completely volunteer and privately funded organization. The Vankleek Hill Food Bank is just one of three programmes run by the Community Assistance Fund Enterprises. They also run a Christmas Baskets / Panier de Noël programme and a Thrift Shop. Proceeds from the Thrift Shop go to support our work with the VKH Food Bank:

 

Heritage Lodge is Vankleek Hill's local retirement residence. They have private living arrangements with common social and dining areas. They offer both short and long-term care. They can provide 24-hour nursing supervision, medication administration, and other medical services.

We support the residents of Heritage Lodge. A number of our parishioners visit regularly and we hold a monthly tea and worship service.

 

Victoria's Quilts Canada - Victoria’s Quilts Canada is a ministry to provide handmade quilts to cancer patients and cancer treatment facilities. By providing these quilts, they hope to bring physical comfort to those dealing with cancer as well a spiritual comfort in knowing that the Lord is with them in their struggle.

Pop Can Pull Tabs - We also collect pull tabs and used genuine wine corks for the Girl Guides of Canada.

 

 

 

Through the Diocese of Ottawa ACW (Anglican Church Women)

Soup Labels - All Campbell's soups sold in a can qualify for redemption. Soup labels are to be removed, and flattened, including the UPC symbol. They are then collected and sent to the Quota club of Ottawa, where they are pooled nationally, and eventually get redeemed for needed supplies for a school for the blind.

 

Stamps - We collect used stamps for the Leprosy Mission of Canada. Used stamps, either still on their envelopes, or a least with a 1/2" margin all around, sorted, bagged and shipped on by ladies at St. Mark's, Ottawa.

PWDRF The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is the Canadian Anglican agency for development, relief, refugees, and justice. PWRDF strives to be a part of the outreach ministry of every Canadian Anglican parish and an expression for all Anglicans of their baptismal covenant to strive for justice and peace and to respect the dignity of every human being.

With the support of Anglican parishes across Canada, PWRDF makes financial and human resources available to support our partners' initiatives and to promote knowledgeable actions of solidarity at home and around the world.

 

Volunteers in Mission - The Volunteers in Mission program, approved by the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada in 1986, enables people of different ages, backgrounds and skills to offer themselves for voluntary service.
