LETTER FROM THE TEAM


The success of a Christian community is not measured by how much we have gathered, but rather how much we have given. Our Christmas project is one of the ways that we freely give what we have so freely been given. We encourage the Heritage Park family, from our children to our seniors, to be generous towards our neighbours each as we are able.
-The Christmas Project Team


WHAT DOES THE CHRISTMAS PROJECT INCLUDE THIS YEAR?


To help meet a real need in our city this year, we will be preparing and distributing food hampers which will include all the things needed for a delicious Christmas dinner. People who register to receive a hamper, will also have the option to request a stocking for each member
of their household (including pets).
Hamper registration has closed.

Last year we provided a traditional Christmas dinner to many International Students from St. Clair College. This year, under the current circumstances, this is not an option, but we don’t want these students to feel forgotten. So, this year we will be making up 150 gifts to be handed out to students who are far from home. Each stocking will contain a hand-made item, treats picked out for them and a gift certificate for a meal.

Lastly, we will also be making up backpacks to be handed out to those without a place to call home. These bags will contain much-needed supplies as well as some treats. For more information check out this video here
