Old Ottawa South Community Association

Help Boost Donations

As one of twenty three longtime member churches of the Centretown Churches Social Action Committee, Southminster United Church provides ongoing donations of food and money to the Centretown Emergency Food Centre.

If you attend the Wednesday noon concerts at Southminster, please bring along an item of food to place in the collection boxes for the Food Centre. Each month some 900 individuals, including many families with children, benefit from a 3-day supply of food from the Centre. The volunteers who staff the Food Centre would suggest any item on the following list: canned tuna, salmon, meat and stews, canned vegetables, canned soups, canned beans, cereals, dry pasta, pasta sauce, or Kraft dinner.
