Over the next few weeks I hope to highlight various local missions that Grace Mennonite Church supports – including Bridge of Hope, Westview Centre for Women, the St. Catharines Soup Kitchen, and Bears and Blankets.
Bears and Blankets Update! We have placed just over 200 Bears and Blankets Care Kits in 13 Long Term Homes. Only 13 more LTC Homes to get on board! And the offering is ongoing. I continue to welcome all donations of next-to-new teddy bears and homey small blankets. The kits also includes a beary sweet card and a bear-paw cookie.
In the next few months I hope to meet with our local MPs – Jennie Stevens and Wayne Gates – to see what can be done to ensure our Elders are treasured and LTC staff are valued. If you would like to join me, let me know. Love always, Jan Steven.
