REACHING OUT TO THE DISENFRANCHISED AND HURTING
We believe that caring for our neighbours is a priority for every believer. Our faith is to reflect the care and mercy of God by showing compassion and practical assistance to those of our community who require help.
"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:40
Hampers of Hope
The UAC Hampers of Hope initiative continues its 30-year tradition of sharing Christmas joy with families by offering a helping hand to neighbourhood families experiencing financial challenges. Since 1993, with the support of many volunteers and donations from our congregation, corporate sponsors and other community groups, we unite to bring the warmth and celebration of Christmas with families in the Markham, Stouffville, and Richmond Hill area, inviting them to join in the holiday festivities.
Our UAC Master's Pantry has been a pillar in the York Region community since 1993, providing over 100 families with monthly sustenance through fresh food, canned goods, and other essential items. Our Master's Pantry food bank is open for use once a month. Although, we regularly host two separate pantries per month, we ask that people attend only one to help us serve as many families as possible.
Toronto Alliance Church Community Outreach
Five times a year we partner with Toronto Alliance Church (TAC) and take a team downtown to prepare and serve dinner to over 100 people who are in need or on the streets. Typically we go the last Saturday of January, March, May, September and November.
Community Care Fund
Giving financially is a big part of what we do and supports these programs in a big way. We have a fund specifically designated to go toward our food bank, our free store and as financial aid for those in need. If you want to donate to this fund, please indicate in the memo line with your donation "Community Care Fund". Your donations to the Community Care Fund go a long way in providing help, hope and a future for many people.
