A Message of Thanks

From the Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission

We are so very thankful for the steady stream of donations that we have been receiving all year long, but especially during this holiday season. Everyone has stepped up to the plate this year, including local businesses, schools, churches, clubs, unions, and individual donors. There are too many to mention and we were humbled by the response.

Also this year, we had more requests than ever to sponsor families with gifts for Christmas. Again, the community met every request that we had and we were able to accommodate everyone.

In 2023 we were blessed to finally be able to bring back our fundraisers (Golf Tournament, Chili Dinner, Tambola) and appreciate the donations of raffle prizes, sponsorships and food to support them. This community is amazing!

We would especially like to thank our volunteers for the tireless efforts they provide on a regular basis and our Board of Directors for their commitment to “People Helping People”. We are proud to be able to provide a safe place for people to get basic necessities, where they can go, without judgement, to nourish their body, mind and spirit.

Going into 2024 we would like to focus on the words of American author Leo Buscaglia, who once said:

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of
which have the potential to turn a life around.”

What makes Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission different is their focus on fellowship and making people feel special each and every day.

With that, I want to thank everyone who has donate to the Mission in any way and to those who partake in the Mission’s services, I thank you for your kindness and support of each other. We hope we can continue to count on the support of our community and look forward to 2024.
