Weston Park Baptist Church is raising money for food bank

Our local food bank has seen a huge increase in need this year—almost quadrupling from 650 visits a month to 2,500. For 31 years, the Weston Park Baptist Church has been a big supporter.

This year, the “food distribution will be very important to families but must be done in a very different way”, so the church is hoping to raise $10,000 to deliver hampers of food and personal-care products this holiday season.

The church will also be collecting non-perishables between November 30 and December 5 at the UPX station, and again at the church on December 7.

Donations can me made through GoFundMe.

Fifth-annual Coat Drive

The TTC , the LEF, and 12 Division police are teaming up to collect gently-used coats for people in need. If you have some, you can bring them by the Weston King Neighbourhood Centre Tuesday through Saturday from 8 AM-3 PM.

Money is always welcome, too, and the money goes far. $10 will buy a new coat. The easiest way to donate money is at supercoffee in Mount Dennis, but you can also find e-transfer and mail details in Frances Nunziata’s email circular.
