Did you know that Giving Tuesday is the most celebrated giving holiday in the world? There could not be a better day to help men, women, and children in the London area who are facing hunger and homelessness.
This Giving Tuesday, you can help neighbours in need through our Scan Away Hunger™ campaign. The goal is to raise $100,000 through the campaign—that’s 32,154 meals—for neighbours experiencing hunger in the community!
In the short video above, Erin shares what it means to her to cook for families receiving services at Rotholme Family Shelter. “I really believe that food is a source of comfort,” she expresses. “…they know where their meals are coming from, they know that their children are going to be having school lunches”.
Balanced meals bring nourishment, connection, and hope to people in need. “We eat three meals a day, every day,” shared Greg, a client at Rotholme Family Shelter. “My daughters are well fed, and Erin makes a strong effort to feed my little one who is just learning to eat solid foods”.
Before seeking help at Rotholme, Greg’s eldest daughter rarely took a lunch to school. “But she takes lunch here,” he said gladly.
Your gifts make a meaningful difference. “To people donating, we really appreciate it… Rotholme saved me from being on the street with my family. We’re grateful for Rotholme, and my daughter likes the food here”.
Giving Tuesday ends on Dec.1 at midnight. Please act today. Together, we can help neighbours in need achieve a different tomorrow—one meal at a time.
Giving Tuesday gifts will make a bold impact on the lives of neighbours struggling with hunger, poverty, and homelessness in the London area. Not only will they provide nourishment, but they will also inspire hope for a different tomorrow.
Because of you, close to $14,000—that’s nearly 4,502 meals—was raised to provide balanced meals for men, women, and children receiving services at Men’s Mission, Rotholme Family Shelter, and Quintin Warner House.
All of us at Mission Services of London are utterly grateful for the generosity and the compassion extended to neighbours in need.
Giving Tuesday donations will provide nourishing meals through this year’s Scan Away Hunger™ campaign—a campaign that aims to raise $100,000 (32,154 meals!) for individuals and families in need by December 31st. Please stay tuned to our website and social media channels for an update in the New Year.
Thank you again for your passion, care, and generosity!
