COVID-19 APPEAL

Let’s remember our neighbours in need!

There are a lot more people in Oakville than most of us realize struggling day to day to provide the basic necessities for themselves and their families. Others have been getting by, however they have no savings to fall back on and will find themselves in a desperate situation if their income changes.

The reality of the restrictions and constraints that have been imposed over the last few days because of the COVID-19 virus, will likely mean a loss of income for many – and that will result in significant hardship, difficulties and distress.

We need your help!

The situation is unprecedented, and we don’t know what to expect moving forward. We do know that KSM provides essential help to many, and it is important we are prepared and able to meet their needs in the coming days. That will mean we purchase food and hygiene products to ensure we have consistent and ample quantities. It may also mean providing emergency benevolence for individuals or families in crisis. With your continued support we will be able to respond and provide Help for the present and Hope for the future to our neighbours in need.

We have already been blessed by the compassion and generosity of our community. In the last few days food has been dropped off, donations have come in, and there have been e-mails and calls asking what we need. Amazing! Thank you!

What is the best way to help?
