Christmas 2017: Feeding The Homeless

The Servants Of Hope Society will be holding their annual "Feeding The Homeless At Christmas" event Monday December 18, 2017. This is an event that I've attended a number of times over the past few years, and each and every time I'm truly amazed.  Traditionally at this time of year I would be encouraging our readers to contact Sean to volunteer some time.

As it reads above you can contact Sean by email at sean@servantsofhope.ca  or keep in touch with them via their Facebook page.
