Giving With Intention

Tobermory United Church and St. Thomas Catholic Mission

     All through the year as communities of faith, we try to be intentional in gathering food for when the need is high at the local Food Bank.

     This church-supported plan is not intended to replace the myriad ways in which food is currently donated.

Goals:    (1)    Supplement the ongoing efforts in the community
(2)    Help us to become more thoughtful in our efforts, and more aware of community needs
(3)    Foster consistent giving
