Waterloo Regional Food Bank – It is obvious during this difficult time, with unemployment rates very high, the Waterloo Regional Food Bank is experiencing larger than usual groups of people suffering food shortages within their families, and in need of help. Therefore, SJRUC will be holding its first “food drive” in 2021 for the Waterloo Regional Food Bank beginning Sunday, February 28th and ending Thursday, March 25th.
Since the doors of SJRUC remain closed at this time, it is hoped during this 3½ week food drive members of our congregation will save up as many food items as possible each week, and deliver their collection to the church parking lot on March 25th, between 6:00 PM and 7:30PM, to completely fill the back of a parked pickup truck for delivery the next day. Also, during this 3½ week food drive, it is hoped many members of our congregation will decide to deliver financial donations in support of the Waterloo Regional Food Bank to our church. When doing so, make sure you clearly identify yourself, and the destination of your donation.
