2017-08-13Holy Redeemer Summer Kanata Food Cupboard Collection
Each year during the month of August, Holy Redeemer Parish helps the Kanata Food Cupboard by running a food drive. During the summer months, the Food Cupboard shelves get bare. They depend on us and need our help. Please bring your food donations to be placed in the Kanata Food Cupboard boxes located in the parish vestibule. Last year, our food drive helped provide the food cupboard in excess of 250 bags of groceries. Thank you very much for your kindness and generosity. There are so many people in need, your help is indeed critical. The following non-perishable items are in short supply:
   - Rice and crackers
   - Large cans/containers of juice
   - Canned flaked meat (chicken and turkey)
   - Canned fruit
   - Fruit cups and juice boxes (size suitable for school/camp lunches)
   - Personal hygiene products (tooth paste, hand soap, shampoo, toilet tissue, etc.)
Thank You!!
