A Letter for Christmas – 2023


“People HELPING People”

Can we count on your support this Christmas?

The Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission is asking you to partner with us to make Christmas 2023 a little brighter for the less fortunate. We have all seen the impact of inflation in the cost of groceries and necessities and this year is going to be especially difficult, as a result.

In 2022 the Mission served more than 17,900 hot meals, provided 800 emergency food baskets and supported young families with much needed supplies such as baby food, formula, diapers and clothing. Unfortunately, the need continues to grow but the Mission is committed to providing a safe, uplifting place for people to go on a daily basis to receive help when needed.

We operate with a team of approximately 70 unpaid volunteers who do it all from shopping, cooking, cleaning, office work, bookkeeping, yardwork, building repairs, fundraising, and so much more. It is important to everyone at the Mission to make every Christmas special so your support is key to our success. Please consider adopting a family this Christmas, providing a gift for the children or making a donation so that we can provide them with an excellent holiday meal. Our volunteers would be happy to work with you to make this happen!

We absolutely rely on your help to make this possible and thank your many faithful supporters and community partners, who give generaously throughout the year.

DONATIONS can be mailed or dropped off at 298 Victoria St. in Amherstburg or by visiting www.aburgmission.ca and clicking the “DONATE NOW” button.

We thank you for all donations, big or small. Your contributions directly impact our community by uplifting the most vulnerable and improving their quality of life.
