The Mission Tree at the back of the sanctuary is decorated with envelopes. Some are marked with the term “Benevolent Fund”. Any donations received are used throughout the year to assist with those who need help on an occasional and short term basis. There are also “trees” with the names, sizes, and ages of a local family in need of assistance. This provides an opportunity for choosing and purchasing an appropriate gift. Also on the tree is information on the “Buy a Night” campaign in support of the local community shelters. The Missions Committee thought it best to provide choices for giving and appreciate your concern and support. In addition to the foregoing we continue our weekly support for the Fredericton Food Bank with donation boxes located at all three entrances.
