Dear Families, 

Did you know that 30 000 Canadians are homeless on any given night? Just in  the Waterloo region there are 264 individuals and families that are homeless. This is why the Student Leadership Team is asking for your help! We are hoping to make a difference by collecting donations of new, or gently used hat, mitts and scarves that will be given to members in our own community from December 2nd to December 16th.

The Cambridge Shelter Corporation has expanded an “Out of the Cold” program that ran in local churches during winter months and has turned into a facility called “Bridges”. This program now includes a year-round emergency shelter and a drop-in centre. It offers support, resources  and hope to help homeless individuals address issues they face and move forward. 

They need our help, especially now during these cold winter months. Adult sized hats, mitts and scarves are requested to help keep the homeless warm. We are hoping to donate our contributions to help the “Bridges” program reach the most vulnerable. 

We are asking you to help make a difference this Holiday Season and bring some “hope” to those most in need. Please help us fill our Trees of Warmth with hats, mitts and scarves!

Sincerely,

The Holy Spirit Student Leadership Team
