As summer comes to an end, we would like to send a big thank out to those who donated items and shopped at our Thrift Store. Thanks go out as well to Chautauqua Residents Association, The Village Supper Market, Ann Loken for their donations and Twin Powers Financial of St Davids for inviting us to set up a booth at their open house where we received food and clothing donations from local residents. We couldn’t do it without you. Many thanks to everyone.
For those who have been asking if you can make a food donation for our Thanksgiving Dinner Program, we could use apple and cranberry juice, chicken and turkey gravy, stuffing and tinned cranberries. We appreciate your wanting to assist.
Our Thrift Shop sales continue to increase, and this month we had the pleasure of donating $10,000 to Red Roof Retreat. We are thrilled to be able to help such a worthwhile charity in our community.
Just a reminder to all of our food clients, registration to receive a Thanksgiving dinner is closing September 27. please call 905 468 3519 to register.
Please note that Newark Neighbours will be closed Thursday Oct 10 and reopening on Tuesday Oct. 15 in order to put together and distribute the Thanksgiving food baskets to our clients and giving time to our volunteers to spend the holiday with their families.
Our last Sunday for shopping will be Oct 6, then we return to our regular hours of Monday to Friday 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Our Thrift Shop is located at 310 John Street (behind Riverbend Inn). For more information please visit our website. www.newarkneighbours.ca.
We appreciate and value the generosity of our community for your donations which allows us to continue our mission of “Serving our Community with Compassion, Care and Concern”. Making this mission a reality would not be possible without all of our volunteers whose time and effort we greatly appreciate.
