Here you can indicate the Wednesdays you are available, your telephone number and your email address.

Bernadette Hymus recently spoke with Christie Reeve, the Harms Reduction Nurse who works with clients who are experiencing homelessness locally. She states that this summer clients are in need of the following:
-gently used t-shirts, men's S-M-L (there is less demand for women’s ) -gently used or new underwear- small or medium only please
If you would like to donate any of these items, please bring them to the office at St Thomas in the next couple of weeks. I will pass them along for distribution.
Thank you in advance for your help. For questions call or text Bernadette at 613-922-4353 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
