December 2021

Greetings!

It has been another challenging year of our community living, working, and adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic highlights the impact on vulnerable and marginalized populations even more.
 
We are serving double the number of meals, our frontline staff is feeling the pressure, and winter is on our doorstep. The frigid temperatures of this season will put already vulnerable individuals at even greater risk.
 
We are committed to feeding every single person who comes to our door for a warm meal. 
 
Make a meaningful gift this holiday season with a donation to PARC! Homeless and poorly-housed men and women rely on PARC's Drop-In for breakfast and lunch. And when the weather gets colder, more people seek food, warmth, and solace at PARC. 
 
Brighten a neighbour's holiday today with a gift that shows you care!

It only takes $4.90 to provide a warm, healthy meal.


Why does every dollar matter during COVID-19?

Your donations help us provide nutritious, tasty meals to those who need them most.

The community meal program is just one of the supports that PARC offers. Every dollar will help keep our facilities sanitized and clean, maintain the safety of our spaces and housing, and continue peer support and outreach programming.

But —our biggest demand continues to be healthy, nutritious meals.

Here’s what your gift can accomplish:
$4.90 provides 1 meal
$19.6 provides 4 meals
$49 provides 10 meals
$122 provides 25 meals
$343 provides 70 meals
$686 provides 140 meals
