St. Paul’s United Church Donation Drive for Matthew House
June 10 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
It’s Time to Clean Out and Reach Out!
Do you have things in your home that haven’t been used for a while? Small appliances, dishes or other household items that haven’t seen the light of day for quite some time? There are many in our city in need of these very things.
On June 10th, you are invited to bring items from the list below to St. Paul’s United Church in Carp. The folks from St. Paul’s will take them to Matthew House, where they will be given away at no charge to new refugees and Ottawa’s marginalized population. In sharing what we have, we can help others with the creation of their new home in Canada.
Please bring items to: St. Paul’s United Church, 3760 Carp Road, in the back parking lot. Someone will be there between 9 am and 1 pm on June 10th to accept your donations.
PLEASE NOTE: If you need assistance to bring items to the church, please call 613- 839-2155 and leave a message for minister Rev. Debbie Roi.
Here is the list of items that will be accepted:
- Bedroom: bed frames (not King size); freshly cleaned bedding, linens, night tables,
- Kitchen: kitchen chairs; small appliances that are clean and in good working order; complete sets (minimum 4 each) of plates, cups, saucers, bowls; serving dishes/bowls; forks, knives, spoons; kitchen utensils; pots and pans, new Tupperware; tablecloths & placemats; curtains & rods (5 years or newer);
