Community Christmas Dinner

Monday, December 25, 2017 - 13:00

Our Mission is to give everyone a little bit of Christmas.

Holy Trinity Church continues to be a thriving part of Welland and on October 28th, of this year, celebrated 160 years as a church.

Holy Trinity Church provides various outreach programs to the marginalized within the community. One program is Hanah's Handbags. This outreach program provides gently used handbags packed with feminine hygiene products to women housed in various service programs such as Bethlehem House and Women's Place. This is made possible by donations from the general public.

Our Hygiene and Food Pantry is also an outreach program offered by the church. On the third Thursday of each month, on average, 100 clients come to pick up items they may not have availability to otherwise. 200 families are registered with this Pantry and registrations continue to increase. This outreach program continues only through donations from generous supporters.

This year, Holy Trinity Church is continuing to bring Welland's community together by offering a Community Christmas Dinner on December 25th at 1 pm at 77 Division Street, Welland, Ontario. This function is open to all regardless of circumstance. Registration is essential in order to plan appropriately on how many meals we will need to prepare for. Attendance is being coordinated by John Gardiner at 905-735-8813.

Our menu will be a traditional Christmas dinner, Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, vegetables (carrots & peas), stuffing, cranberry sauce,, dessert & coffee, tea & milk for the children.

We will also require volunteers to assist with set up, food prep, cooking, serving & clean up, this will be led by Barb Butts at 289-820-6211 or 905-512-6224. Community Services hours will be given to those registered if applicable.

We are actively seeking sponsorship from our Community. A sponsorship committee has also been set up comprised of John Wellwood, Mark McGill, John Gardiner and myself. It is my hope that the Welland Business Community can assist us in ensuring that everyone has a little bit of Christmas! Contact John @ 905-714-4357.

Income Tax receipts will be issued to donors of $100.00 or more.
