Migrant Worker Welcome. Hello again Friends, Yes… many of you have been asking if everything is on board again this year.  The answer is yes, yes, yes.  As we all know without the help and enthusiasm of all of you, this outreach would never have gotten off the ground many years ago. Our date is Saturday June 17 at our small but mighty Kilbride Church.  Now is the time to start pleading with your family, friends and neighbours for men’s clothing, shoes, towels, blankets, bedding, pillows and suitcases. We save women’s and children’s items until the fall.  We always need bicycles, too. We will once again set up our store on the Friday afternoon at 1pm. We are always open to new suggestions that you think would work well with our guests.  Let us know.  We have our entertainment set . Unfortunately, the young lady who entertained at the Soup Feast in Hamilton wasn’t available.  Maybe another time.  Always looking for new talent.

Won’t it be wonderful if we can set up our tables in the backyard ?  I hope we are getting our summer’s worth of rain now so that the sun will shine and the clouds will clear for us on the 17th of June.

Blessings to you and all those you love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Welcome Back to local Migrant Workers.

Chris has prepared all the personal care kits thanks to donations of $10. Per kit! Donations are always welcomed. Monies donated over $20.00 can receive a tax receipt.
We will be setting up our store on Friday at 1pm. I appreciate everyone keeping their donations until then but if you are unable to help set up, you can always bring your donations to our house. 6465 Milburough Line. For the welcome back we don’t collect women’s or children’s items. Bedding and towels and pillows will be needed. Nothing goes to waste. After the party all clothing and other items are taken to Salvation Army and the Living Rock in Hamilton. There is always need.2015 fall bq 3
The fun begins after 5:30 on the Saturday, June 25. We need help with everything. Put on your name tag and put a smile on your face and ask how you can help…personal shoppers, set up for the dinner hopefully outside. Help is always needed in the kitchen. Even though we are serving chicken and, hamburgs we need salads, main dishes that feed a crowd and of course desserts. Nothing goes to waste. We already have the foam containers for our guests to take home a snack for the next day.
Our special entertainment begins at 8pm. for our guests. We are thrilled to have the Hamilton Youth Steel Orchestra perform for us. We will see what evening weather comes but we will have packed away our store just in case we are entertained in the sanctuary. It wouldn’t be the first time we have had a conga line up and down the aisles.
Hopefully, I have covered the main points of this very special evening. We are blessed to have so many wonderful people such as yourself who want to get involved with helping our friends from away year after year.
