Feed a Family – 14 days for $40

Posted on Apr 5, 2014 in Get Involved

Feed a Family – 14 days for $40

Join us in our Lent fundraising event “14 days for $40″

Did you know that only $40 can feed a family for 14 days?  The Cambridge Shelter relies heavily on donations from individuals just like you, who give generously from the heart.

For those that observe lent, it’s a time of reflection, and of sacrificing or “giving up” something of value to you.

Today we know Lent as a season of conversion: we acknowledge the ways we have turned away from spirituality in our lives and we refocus on centering our hearts and minds.

Take the time now to think about what you might give up this year, and how this may benefit others in your community.

To make your donation through Canada Helps, please visit

Thank you for thinking of our homeless families during this season.

Families Experiencing Homelessness – Changing the Perspective

We’re proud to announce that this year’s Public Awareness & Education event is to be held on Thursday March 27 @ 5:30 pm at Forward Church.

The focus of this year’s event is on Families Experiencing Homelessness – Changing the Perspective.

 

The ticket price is $45 with a $20 tax receipt provided. For a table of 8, each individual gets an additional $5 off their ticket.

A big thank you to Zoup, a new specialty soup restaurant in town, and Toyota for donating gourmet soup & providing sandwiches. Highlights of the evening will be a video segment highlighting the incredible stories of some of our Canadian and refugee families, accompanied by an entertainment portion & our presenter.

This is an excellent event for any of your circle of influence (friends, family, co-workers, group contacts etc.) you work with to get a sense of the barriers that prevent our clients from living a life of dignity and the solutions our work, and the broader community at large offer to overcoming these barriers.

Watch our site for upcoming details, and be sure to mark this on your calendar!

2014 Walk to the Future – Gearing up for December’s Challenge!

Posted on Jan 1, 2014 in Get Involved, News

2014 Walk to the Future – Gearing up for December’s Challenge!

The Challenge Is On!

Good walking shoes, and a big heart is are you need to make a huge difference in someone’s life when you join this year’s annual “Walk to the Future” planned for December 2014.

It’s so EASY, and it’s fun!  Your team for this annual fundraising community challenge can be a few of your best friends, members of your Church, your school or your co-workers. Get together with neighbours, and round up the kids.  Pick up your sponsorship form, and you’re ready to go.

We meet at Monsignor Doyle Catholic Secondary School on Myers Rd between 9 and 10 am on the day of the 5k walk. We’ll be ready to get you on your way for the 10am start.   The walk takes approximately an hour, and of course everyone goes at their own pace.  This is social, fun chance to get out and show your support for families and individuals in your local region who will benefit greatly from the dollars raised.

AND THERE’S MORE…

A hot lunch is supplied when you return at the end of the walk along with live entertainment and draws for prizes!

Funds contributed to the “Walk to the Future” are used to help people in need in the Cambridge area. Expenses associated with the Walk to the Future average less than 3% of the money raised. We’re able to do this by having a generous volunteer community that dedicate their time and expertise to organizing this event each and every year.

If you have questions about this event, please call us at 519-624-9305. Additional information and updates will be published as we move closer to the event date.
