Saturday Night Supper – December 4
On Saturday December 4 St. Andrew’s and Kortright P. C. are scheduled to donate the supper at the Royal City Mission. As we have done throughout the pandemic, the Mission and Outreach Coordinating Committee will purchase the salads, dessert bars, and juice boxes that St. Andrew’s is responsible for providing this time. Monetary donations to St. Andrew’s P. C., designated for the SNS, would be very much appreciated!
Once again, volunteers will not be needed because only a few people are required to fill up the take-out containers and distribute the meals. We hope that by March 5, the date of our next Saturday Night Supper, we can have the supper inside, and work alongside volunteers from Kortright to serve the food.
