In 2015, $150 donations were matched by Faithlife Financial for the Syrian Refugee fund of Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR). Thank you all for your generosity.
You can continue your support through the CLWR. For most kids in Canada, going to school is part of growing up. But in Jordan, education is not so routine for Syrian refugee families. The Jordanian government has generously welcomed refugee students into its schools, but the wear and tear of so many more children shows in the buildings. You can help improve learning conditions for refugees in Jordanian schools by designating your gift to CLWR to the school makeover fund at www.givingschoolday.ca

Project Winter Warmth - Help the Homeless in Ottawa
A Facebook group has initiated a project to help the homeless in Ottawa. Please visit the website and consider how you can help.
The Mission – Shepherds of Good Hope - CHEO!
Our 100th Anniversary Care kits were very much appreciated, and the need at these places is still great. If you want to continue to help: The Mission and Shepherds of Good Hope are always in need of socks, mittens, scarves, hats, and winter clothes for men and women. CHEO is in need of blankets and quilts for toddlers. Minimum size is 32 x 47 inches. Knitted blankets need to be 36 x 40 inches or larger - these must be tightly knit so that little fingers and toes cannot fit into the holes.
