United Together in Caring: Seven west-end Ottawa United Churches are coordinating efforts to raise money for Hospice Care Ottawa, specifically to support the construction of the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice in Kanata. The participating churches are Bells Corner United, Britannia United, Glen Cairn United, Kanata United, Stittsville United, St. Paul’s United (Carp), and St. Paul’s United (Richmond). The goal of this campaign is to jointly raise at least $50,000 for Hospice Care Ottawa with fundraising events wrapping up by the end of March 2018. All money raised will be directed to fund a room in Hein House which will help to highlight the importance of community involvement in hospice programs and operations. Between now and the end of March 2018, each congregation will host their own fundraising activities, so keep an eye out for upcoming events. Offering envelopes are available at the pews, at the back of the church or from the office. Please mark them “For Hospice Care Ottawa”. Contact Wendy Gallant at wgallant50@bell.net for more information if required.

Food donations: Please remember to donate in the summer – the need is great! The usual number of clients on a Friday at the Britannia Woods Food Pantry is about 27 – requesting food for over 100 people. On the 16 June there were 47 clients – requesting food for more than 200 people. After that the Food Pantry shelves were very empty, and there were 14 days of month left!
