When the Church closed due to Covid-19 ContacT PlacE closed as well, so we sent most of our supplies to Chalmers Community Support Services and Three Willows to distribute. We were able to send around 600 pounds. An additional amount was taken to The Salvation Army.
At this time Contact Place will be discontinued until the community needs change so that a new revised Trinity program can be created to meet our community needs. We will continue to support United Church food pantries in Guelph.
ContacT PlacE originated in February 1993 as part of the “Becoming Aware of Poverty (BAP)” Outreach group at Trinity United Church. Our emergency food cupboard/pantry was created in response to a query from the Church secretary to take action to the numerous visitors requesting monetary assistance to purchase food and as an action plan following several discussion meetings and asking community contacts for suggestions.
Thank you from Chalmers Community Support Services (received February 9, 2021)
