Love Bags Program
Spreading the LOVE of the Lord and the LOVE of our neighbours, the distribution of St. Paul’s Love Bags began in December 2021. During 2022, St. Paul’s distributed over 600 Love Bags to those in need. The Love Bags contain a devotional, personal hygiene items and cleaning products that are essential but often times not affordable to some during these challenging times. The number of recipients has increased through 2022 primarily due to the rising cost of inflation and the impact of COVID on many families not being able to work.
The ongoing support of the congregation as well as donations from the community are appreciated. We see God’s hands at work in all we do. The Love Bags are packaged by Nancy Boyd and Ida Haesler for the third Saturday of each month when recipients also pick up their Food Bank supplies.
Anyone wishing to donate items for the Love Bags may contact Nancy Boyd to arrange drop off of items. Nancy can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Items in regular need are: tooth paste, tooth brushes, men and women’s deodorant, shaving cream, razors, body, hand, dish and laundry soaps, body moisture creams, foot creams, mouth wash shampoo and conditioner, household cleaning products, diapers, wipes, hair combs and brushes Many thanks to all of you who continue to support those in need through the St. Paul’s Love Bag program.
