Barrie, Ontario
Recipient: The Lighthouse   Initiative: Bags of Love

The Barrie Ecclesia members requested the Bags of Love and the $250 grant to support a local homeless shelter in one of our nearby communities.  The Lighthouse in Orillia provides meals, overnight emergency accommodation and supportive housing to those in need.  The bags, supplies bought with the grant, and a collection of donated supplies from the ecclesial members, was dropped off to the shelter, where staff were very appreciative to be able to restock supplies as winter sets in.  I have attached a photograph of us dropping off the supplies to Lighthouse! Thanks to WCF for assisting us in this outreach! With love in Christ, The Barrie Ecclesia
