What's Happening Now

CHURCH FOOD DRIVES FILL SHELVES 

In late May our shelves become perilously low. We find ourselves short of nearly everything from rice to baby food.

Burlington Food Bank was originally established by a handful of Burlington churches. So, we decided to ask Burlington churches to help us out of our situation by holding Food Drives on our behalf. The response is absolutely outstanding!

The churches respond to such a degree that we have sufficient supplies to see our way clear through the summer.

Our heartfelt thanks to the Congregations and Clergy of:

Appleby United Church

Burlington Baptist Church

Burlington Christian Reformed Church

 Burlington Fellowship Canadian Reformed Church

Eaglesfield Community Church

East Plains United Church

Port Nelson United Church

St. Christopher's Anglican Church

St. John's Anglican Church

St. John the Baptist R. C. Church

St. Luke's Anglican Church
