Drop Inn at Newtonbrook United Church   Leave a comment

Newtonbrook United Church and the Taiwanese United Church provide a weekly Drop Inn, and have been doing so for more than 10 years. Additional information is available on the church website: http://www.newtonbrookunitedchurch.ca

During the month of November, 2011 Newtonbrook United Church and the Taiwanese United Church in Toronto provided, out of the goodness of their hearts;

November 2             122 meals

November 9             151 meals

November 16           207 meals

November 23           203 meals

November 30           168 meals

Total                        851

In addition to serving food to our guests, these two United Church of Canada congregations have also partnered with North Toronto Support Services, as one example, to insure that additional assistance is available to help our guests live as best they can in their trying circumstances. As Christians we believe that all people are called to serve those who have the least in this great society in which we all live. This is from Matthew 25: 31 – 46.

We are also aware that it was Winston Churchill who said that one measures the degree of civilization of a society by how it treats its weakest members.
